Gene: Wnt5a (wingless-type MMTV integration site family, member 5A) Mus musculus
Symbol: Wnt5a
Name: wingless-type MMTV integration site family, member 5A
Description: Exhibits frizzled binding activity; protein domain specific binding activity; and receptor ligand activity. Involved in several processes, including Wnt signaling pathway; animal organ development; and positive regulation of cytokine production. Localizes to the cell surface and extracellular matrix. Used to study Robinow syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant Robinow syndrome 1. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; embryo ectoderm; genitourinary system; limb; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human WNT5A (Wnt family member 5A); PARTICIPATES IN Wnt signaling, canonical pathway; Wnt signaling, non-canonical pathway; basal cell carcinoma pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
