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.
26100275 MicroRNA-374b Suppresses Proliferation and Promotes Apoptosis in T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma by Repressing AKT1 and Wnt-16
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.
23617586 results suggest synergistic effects of WNT16a insertion and the at-risk 'T' allele of TCF7L2 (rs7903146) for elevating the expression of TCF7L2 in human pancreas which may affect the regulation of downstream target genes involved in the development of T2D
23417354 Common missense polymorphisms of the WNT16 gene are associated with bone mineral density at the hip, calcaneal ultrasound and the buckling ratio of the femoral neck, as well as with hip fractures in individuals under 80 years of age.
23074152 Analyses of femoral neck BMD also supported association with SNPs in WNT16 and ESR1/C6orf97
22863786 Treatment-induced damage to the tumor microenvironment promotes prostate cancer therapy resistance through WNT16B.
22792071 These results suggest a critical role of Wnt 16 signaling pathway on cortical bone thickness and bone strength determination as well as fracture susceptibility.
22792070 these findings postulate that the WNT16/C7orf58 locus contains complex patterns of genetic variation, which play an important role in peak bone mass accrual and may likely impact BMD determination at later life.
19951988 study identified WNT16B as a new marker of senescence that regulates p53 activity and the PI3K/AKT pathway and is necessary for the onset of replicative senescence
19863181 Results demonstrated significant up-regulation of WNT-3, WNT-4, WNT-5B, WNT-7B, WNT-9A, WNT-10A, and WNT-16B in patients with CLL compared to normal subjects.
19101069 Wnt16 does not activate canonical Wnt signaling in E2A-PBX1-positive cells. Instead, beta-catenin is involved in N-cadherin-dependent adherence junctions
16769578 Targeted-E2A-PBX1 inhibition leads to reduced expression of the EB-1 and Wnt16b genes; aberrant expression of these genes may be a key step in leukemogenesis in t(1;19)-positive pre-B leukemia.
16007226 Targeted-Wnt16b inhibition leads to apoptotic cell death, and Wnt16b mediates its effect through canonical Wnt pathway involving dishevelled-2, beta-catenin and survivin; Wnt16 plays an important role in leukemogenesis.
