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.
26538547 Forced overexpression of Wnt7B with or without TGFB1 treatment increased Wnt5A protein expression in normal human smooth muscle cells and fibroblasts but not in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis myofibroblasts where Wnt5A was already highly expressed.
25823570 WNT7B as a novel susceptibility gene for axial length and corneal curvature and is associated with myopia and extreme myopia.
24638982 Results illustrated the critical role of myeloid WNT7B in tumor progression, acting at the levels of angiogenesis, invasion, and metastasis.
23416978 WNT7B can serve as a primary determinant of differential Wnt/beta-catenin activation in pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
23386686 Results suggest that AR-regulated WNT7B signaling is critical for the growth of CRPC and development of the osteoblastic bone response characteristic of advanced prostate cancer.
22949635 Pdgf signaling potentiates Wnt2-Wnt7b signaling to promote high levels of Wnt activity in mesenchymal progenitors that is required for proper development of endoderm-derived organs, such as the lung
22838404 Wnt7B was expressed at high concentrations in regions of active hyperplasia, metaplasia, and fibrotic change in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients.
20634891 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
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.
19734317 These data demonstrate that mesenchymal stem cells from mice and humans produce Wnt proteins and TGF-beta1 that respectively stimulate lung fibroblast proliferation and matrix production.
