Gene: WNT5B (Wnt family member 5B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: WNT5B
Name: Wnt family member 5B
Description: Exhibits signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in chondrocyte differentiation and positive regulation of cell migration. Localizes to the extracellular exosome. Colocalizes with the collagen-containing extracellular matrix. Biomarker of leiomyoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
