GENE - TERM ANNOTATION REPORT

CRRD ID: 1312373
Species: Homo sapiens
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: LRP6
Name: LDL receptor related protein 6
Acc ID: GO:0060070
Term: canonical Wnt signaling pathway
Definition: The series of molecular signals initiated by binding of a Wnt protein to a frizzled family receptor on the surface of the target cell, followed by propagation of the signal via beta-catenin, and ending with a change in transcription of target genes. In this pathway, the activated receptor signals via downstream effectors that result in the inhibition of beta-catenin phosphorylation, thereby preventing degradation of beta-catenin. Stabilized beta-catenin can then accumulate and travel to the nucleus to trigger changes in transcription of target genes.
Definition Source(s): GOC:bf, GOC:dph, PMID:11532397, PMID:19619488
Note: Use of the qualifier "multiple interactions" designates that the annotated interaction is comprised of a complex set of reactions and/or regulatory events, possibly involving additional chemicals and/or gene products.
