26548512 the present study detected abnormal upregulation in the levels of Wnt2b and Wnt7b, and hypothesized that the alterations may be due to the ectopic opening of chromatin structure.
25356045 ACSL5 mediates antiproliferative activities via Wnt2B palmitoylation with diminished Wnt activity. The molecular pathway is probably relevant for intestinal homeostasis, overwhelmed by other pathways in carcinogenesis.
25297925 Results showed that miR-185-3p contributs to radioresistance of nasopharyngeal carcinoma via modulation of WNT2B expression.

18606951 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
17649721 Heplipin induced KG-1 cell apoptosis is related with Wntl3 and ATPase3.
16407296 in addition to alternative promoters and RNA splicing, an alternative translation start in Wnt13B and Wnt13C mRNAs increases the complexity of both human wnt13 expression and functions
16273293 REVIEW: Anti-WNT2B monoclonal antibodies, WNT2B RNAi compounds, or small molecule WNT2B inhibitors could be developed as novel therapeutic agents for gastric cancer and esophageal cancer in the field of clinical oncology.
12072409 Wnt-2b mRNA is expressed in human ovarian cancer cells
11712082 This is the first report on differential regulation of WNT2 and WNT2B mRNAs in human cancer cell lines.
