|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||39721 Da|
|Antigen Region||173-201 aa|
|Other Names||Protein Wnt-6, WNT6|
|Target/Specificity||This WNT6 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 173-201 amino acids from the Central region of human WNT6.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||WNT6 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. Probable developmental protein. May be a signaling molecule which affects the development of discrete regions of tissues. Is likely to signal over only few cell diameters. Together with CAV1 may promote chemoresistance of gastric cancer cells to DNA-damaging anthracycline drugs through the activation of the canonical Wnt receptor signaling pathway.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in gastric cancer cell lines and gastric cancer tissues (at protein level). Detected in the apical gland region of the gastric foveolar epithelium (at protein level).|

The WNT gene family consists of structurally related genes which encode secreted signaling proteins. These proteins have been implicated in oncogenesis and in several developmental processes, including regulation of cell fate and patterning during embryogenesis. This gene is a member of the WNT gene family. It is overexpressed in cervical cancer cell line and strongly coexpressed with another family member, WNT10A, in colorectal cancer cell line. The gene overexpression may play key roles in carcinogenesis. This gene and the WNT10A gene are clustered in the chromosome 2q35 region. The protein encoded by this gene is 97% identical to the mouse Wnt6 protein at the amino acid level.
