26997628 Wnt5a is increased and beta-catenin is decreased in parenchyma from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients.
26978652 Epigenetic inactivation of the WNT5A promoter B involves both DNA methylation and histone modifications. Differential expression of the WNT5A alternative promoters A and B is a characteristic of osteosarcomas.
26848991 Studied the roles of WNT4 and WNT5A in human decidulization and their relationship with preeclampsia.
26800561 Noncanonical Wnt5a signaling and JNK activity contribute to vascular insulin resistance and endothelial dysfunction.
26794322 Mutation in WNT5A may serve as a susceptibility factor for Congenital Anomalies Of Kidney And Urinary Tract.
26708384 Wnt5a-Ror2 signaling enhances expression and secretion of CXCL16 in mesenchymal stem cells thereby activating CXCR6 expressed on tumor cells to promote proliferation.
26708300 these findings suggest that miR154 functions as a tumor suppressor in osteosarcoma by partially suppressing Wnt5a expression.
26690702 This study identifies an interaction between ROR1 and ROR2 that is required for Wnt5a signaling that promotes leukemia chemotaxis and proliferation.
26648282 Wnt5a is involved in the modulation of pancreatic cancer cell proliferation.
26596412 results corroborated previous findings of Ryk-mediated Wnt5a effect, and suggested a role for Ror2 in the Wnt5a machinery in glioblastoma
