Gene: Wnt8b (wingless-type MMTV integration site family, member 8B) Mus musculus
Symbol: Wnt8b
Name: wingless-type MMTV integration site family, member 8B
Description: Predicted to have cytokine activity and frizzled binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of gene expression and positive regulation of gene expression. Predicted to localize to extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including cochlea; eye; future brain; head mesenchyme; and nervous system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Hirschsprung's disease. Orthologous to human WNT8B (Wnt family member 8B); PARTICIPATES IN Wnt signaling, canonical pathway; basal cell carcinoma pathway; Hedgehog signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl; 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
