These Polyclonal antibodies are of rabbit origin developed by immunizing animals with proteins or peptides. The polyclonal antibody is purified by affinity purification from the rabbit sera generated after immunizing the rabbits with a specific type of protein or peptide. The purified antibody is tested for its functionality in various relevant research applications. The antibody is developed for Research Use Only and is non-hazardous or non-infectious in nature.
This antibody is predicted to react with Monkey, Mouse and Pig.
Wnt proteins constitute a family of secreted glyocoproteins that activate signal transduction pathways to mediate tissue homeostasis, cell fate, cell proliferation, and self-renewal. The canonical signaling pathway is initiated upon Wnt binding to a Frizzled family receptor and an LRP5/LRP6 coreceptor, which leads to activation of the beta-catenin cascade. Non-canonical Wnt signals are activated by binding to a Frizzled family receptor and ROR2 coreceptor. Extensive research has shown that deregulation of these pathways or its components can lead to cancer. Human Wnt-1 is encoded as a 370 amino acid precursor that, upon secretion, is cleaved into a 343 amino acid (42 kDa) mature form. At the amino acid level, mature human Wnt-1 is approximately 99% identical to mature mouse Wnt-1. Depending on the tissue, Wnt-1 can activate the canonical and non-canonical signaling pathways. Studies have demonstrated its involvement in a variety of functions, including embryonic development and carcinogenesis. Wnt-1 signaling can also induce the phosphorylation and subsequent degradation of c-Myb.
