|Function||Receptor for Wnt proteins. Most of frizzled receptors are coupled to the beta-catenin canonical signaling pathway, which leads to the activation of disheveled proteins, inhibition of GSK- 3 kinase, nuclear accumulation of beta-catenin and activation of Wnt target genes. A second signaling pathway involving PKC and calcium fluxes has been seen for some family members, but it is not yet clear if it represents a distinct pathway or if it can be integrated in the canonical pathway, as PKC seems to be required for Wnt-mediated inactivation of GSK-3 kinase. Both pathways seem to involve interactions with G-proteins. May be involved in transduction and intercellular transmission of polarity information during tissue morphogenesis and/or in differentiated tissues.|

Members of the 'frizzled' gene family encode7-transmembrane domain proteins that are receptors for Wntsignaling proteins. The FZD7 protein contains an N-terminal signalsequence, 10 cysteine residues typical of the cysteine-richextracellular domain of Fz family members, 7 putative transmembranedomains, and an intracellular C-terminal tail with a PDZdomain-binding motif. FZD7 gene expression may downregulate APCfunction and enhance beta-catenin-mediated signals in poorlydifferentiated human esophageal carcinomas.
