WNT2B gene

Wnt family member 2B

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a member of the wingless-type MMTV integration site (WNT) family of highly conserved, secreted signaling factors. WNT family members function in a variety of developmental processes including regulation of cell growth and differentiation and are characterized by a WNT-core domain. This gene may play a role in human development as well as carcinogenesis. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2014]

From UniProt:

Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. Functions in the canonical Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway. Plays a redundant role in embryonic lung development.

From NCBI Gene:

  • DIARRHEA 9

From UniProt:

Diarrhea 9 (DIAR9): An autosomal recessive form of chronic diarrhea characterized by neonatal-onset of osmotic diarrhea that is not substrate specific, abnormal crypt and villus architecture, and significant fat malabsorption evidenced by high levels of fecal fat. [MIM:618168]
