Immunofluorescent staining of chick embryos using Rb anti-WNT6 (Cat. no. 38-3400). Antibody labels the non-neural ectoderm of chick embryos from stages 8 to 14, consistent with mRNA expression by ISH. Additional staining is observed in endodermal tissues caudal to the otic level in heart- and gut-forming regions.

The WNT gene family consists of structurally related genes which encode secreted signaling proteins. These proteins have been implicated in oncogenesis and in several developmental processes, including regulation of cell fate and patterning during embryogenesis. This gene is a member of the WNT gene family. It is overexpressed in cervical cancer cell line and strongly coexpressed with another family member, WNT10A, in colorectal cancer cell line. The gene overexpression may play key roles in carcinogenesis. This gene and the WNT10A gene are clustered in the chromosome 2q35 region. The protein encoded by this gene is 97% identical to the mouse Wnt6 protein at the amino acid level.
