Gene Family: Wnt family (WNT)

Also known as : "WNT signaling gene family", "Wingless-type MMTV integration site family"

Wnt family: The Wnt protein family includes a large number of cysteine-rich glycoproteins. The Wnt proteins activate signal transduction cascades via three different pathways, the canonical Wnt pathway, the noncanonical planar cell polarity (PCP) pathway, and the noncanonical Wnt/Ca2+ pathway.
