WNT5A and WNT5B are near-identical members of the WNT gene family, which consists of structurally related genes which encode secreted signaling proteins that have been implicated in oncogenesis and in several developmental processes, including regulation of cell fate and patterning during embryogenesis (1,2). WNT5A and WNT5B coordinate chondrocyte proliferation and differentiation by differentially regulating cyclin D1 and p130 expression, as well as chondrocyte-specific Col2a1 expression (3). Up-regulation of WNT5A and WNT5B has been observed in several types of human cancers, suggesting that they may be useful as diagnostic markers or potent therapeutic targets (4).
