26627248 loss of endogenous WNT16 results specifically in cortical bone loss, whereas overexpression of WNT16 surprisingly increases mainly trabecular bone mass.
26584014 Data indicate that WNT16 is critical for positive regulation of both cortical and trabecular bone mass and structure. WNT16-TG mice exhibited significantly higher whole-body areal bone mineral density and bone mineral content.
26256109 Although in vitro studies demonstrated no differences in expressions of wild-type and mutant forms of IDUA and WNT16B proteins, in silico analyses predicts that WNT16 rs2707466 directly abolishes a phosphorylation site, which could cause a deleterious effect on WNT16 protein.
26254351 ALL cells expressing WNT16 are sensitive to endoplasmic reticulum stress, and show enhanced killing after addition of chloroquine.

25614285 Describe TGFbeta-Wnt16-Notch signaling conduit in the chondrocyte-like transformation of VSMCs and identify endogenous TGFbeta activity in MGP-null VSMCs as a critical mediator of chondrogenesis.
25306233 Osteoblast-derived WNT16 is a previously unreported key regulator of osteoclastogenesis and fracture susceptibility.
24945404 variants at WNT16 were more strongly related to upper limb-bone mineral density, than to bone mineral density at the other sites.
24185276 Increased translation of WNT16 can thus lead to an increased inhibitory action of WNT16 on canonical WNT signaling.
24082114 Estrogen/progesterone treatment of mature myometrial cells induced expression of WNT11 and WNT16, which remained constitutively elevated in leiomyoma tissues.
