Gene: Wnt7a (wingless-type MMTV integration site family, member 7A) Mus musculus
Symbol: Wnt7a
Name: wingless-type MMTV integration site family, member 7A
Description: Exhibits frizzled binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; blood vessel morphogenesis; and embryonic limb morphogenesis. Localizes to several cellular components, including Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; cell surface; and glutamatergic synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; embryo ectoderm; reproductive system; sensory organ; and urinary system. Used to study Fuhrmann syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Fuhrmann syndrome. Orthologous to human WNT7A (Wnt family member 7A); PARTICIPATES IN Wnt signaling, canonical pathway; Wnt signaling, non-canonical pathway; basal cell carcinoma pathway; INTERACTS WITH 4,4'-sulfonyldiphenol; 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine; all-trans-retinoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
