Target

  • FunctionReceptor for Wnt proteins. Most of frizzled receptors are coupled to the beta-catenin canonical signaling pathway, which leads to the activation of disheveled proteins, inhibition of GSK-3 kinase, nuclear accumulation of beta-catenin and activation of Wnt target genes. A second signaling pathway involving PKC and calcium fluxes has been seen for some family members, but it is not yet clear if it represents a distinct pathway or if it can be integrated in the canonical pathway, as PKC seems to be required for Wnt-mediated inactivation of GSK-3 kinase. Both pathways seem to involve interactions with G-proteins. May be involved in transduction and intercellular transmission of polarity information during tissue morphogenesis and/or in differentiated tissues.
  • Tissue specificityHigh expression in adult skeletal muscle and fetal kidney, followed by fetal lung, adult heart, brain, and placenta. Specifically expressed in squamous cell esophageal carcinomas.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor Fz/Smo family.
    Contains 1 FZ (frizzled) domain.
  • DomainLys-Thr-X-X-X-Trp motif is involved in the activation of the Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway.
    The FZ domain is involved in binding with Wnt ligands.
