Gene: WNT9B (Wnt family member 9B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: WNT9B
Name: Wnt family member 9B
Description: The WNT gene family consists of structurally related genes that 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. Study of its expression in the teratocarcinoma cell line NT2 suggests that it may be implicated in the early process of neuronal differentiation of NT2 cells induced by retinoic acid. This gene is clustered with WNT3, another family member, in the chromosome 17q21 region. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]
