    The Wnt signaling pathway controls numerous cell fates in animal development and is also a major cancer pathway. Dishevelled (Dvl) transduces the Wnt signal by interacting with the cytoplasmic Axin complex. Dvl and Axin each contain a DIX domain whose molecular properties and structure are...

    Background: Axin1 and its homolog Axin2 are scaffold proteins essential for regulating Wnt signaling. Axin-dependent regulation of Wnt is important for various developmental processes and human diseases. However, the involvement of Axin1 and Axin2 in host defense and inflammation remains to be...

    The adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) tumour suppressor is a multifunctional protein involved in the regulation of Wnt signalling and cytoskeletal dynamics. Little is known about how APC controls these disparate functions. In this study, we have used APC- and axin-fluorescent fusion proteins to...

    Colorectal cancer results from mutations in components of the Wnt pathway that regulate β-catenin levels. Dishevelled (Dvl or Dsh) signals downstream of Wnt receptors and stabilizes β-catenin during cell proliferation and embryonic axis formation. Moreover, Dvl contributes to cytoskeletal...

  • Wnt/Wingless signaling through β-catenin requires the function of both LRP/Arrow and frizzled classes of receptors. Schweizer, Liang; Varmus, Harold // BMC Cell Biology;2003, Vol. 4, p4 

    Background: Wnt/Wingless (Wg) signals are transduced by seven-transmembrane Frizzleds (Fzs) and the single-transmembrane LDL-receptor-related proteins 5 or 6 (LRP5/6) or Arrow. The aminotermini of LRP and Fz were reported to associate only in the presence of Wnt, implying that Wnt ligands form a...

  • Axin and Frat1 interact with Dvl and GSK, bridging Dvl to GSK in Wnt-mediated regulation of LEF-1. Lin Li; Huidong Yuan; Weaver, Carole D.; Junhao Mao; Farr III, Gist H.; Sussman, Daniel J.; Jonkers, Jos; Kimelman, David; Dianqing Wu // EMBO Journal;8/1/99, Vol. 18 Issue 15, p4233 

    Wnt proteins transduce their signals through dishevelled (Dvl) proteins to inhibit glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK), leading to the accumulation of cytosolic β-catenin and activation of TCF/LEF-1 transcription factors. To understand the mechanism by which Dvl acts through GSK to regulate...

  • Interaction of Axin and Dvl-2 proteins regulates Dvl-2-stimulated TCF-dependent transcription. Smalley, Matthew J.; Sara, Elizabeth; Paterson, Hugh; Naylor, Stuart; Cook, David; Jayatilake, Hiran; Fryer, Lee G.; Hutchinson, Lisa; Fry, Michael J.; Dale, Trevor C. // EMBO Journal;5/17/99, Vol. 18 Issue 10, p2823 

    Axin promotes the phosphorylation of β-catenin by GSK-3β, leading to β-catenin degradation. Wnt signals interfere with β-catenin turnover, resulting in enhanced transcription of target genes through the increased formation of β-catenin complexes containing TCF transcription...

    Dishevelled-Axin domain containing 1 (DIXDC1) is a DIX (Dishevelled-Axin) domain possessing protein that acts as a positive regulator of the Wnt pathway. Although DIXDC1 has been investigated in several cancers, it has not yet been studied in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The purpose of...

    Wnt signalling is prevented by the proteosomal degradation of β-catenin, which occurs in a destruction complex containing adenomatous polyposis coli (APC), APC-like (APCL), Axin and Axin2. Truncating mutations of the APC gene result in the constitutive stabilisation of β-catenin and the...

    Glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β) is a serine/ threonine kinase involved in insulin, growth factor and Wnt signalling. In Wnt signalling, GSK3β is recruited to a multiprotein complex via interaction with axin, where it hyperphosphorylates β-catenin, marking it for ubiquitylation...
