  • FunctionAntagonizes canonical Wnt signaling by inhibiting LRP5/6 interaction with Wnt and by forming a ternary complex with the transmembrane protein KREMEN that promotes internalization of LRP5/6. DKKs play an important role in vertebrate development, where they locally inhibit Wnt regulated processes such as antero-posterior axial patterning, limb development, somitogenesis and eye formation. In the adult, Dkks are implicated in bone formation and bone disease, cancer and Alzheimer disease.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in cerebellum, T-cells, esophagus and lung.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the dickkopf family.
  • DomainThe C-terminal cysteine-rich domain mediates interaction with LRP5 and LRP6.
  • Post-translational
    Appears to be not glycosylated.
    Can be proteolytically processed by a furin-like protease.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.
