Inhibitor of the Wnt signaling pathway. Down-regulates beta-catenin. Probably facilitate the phosphorylation of beta-catenin and APC by GSK3B.
Expressed in brain and lymphoblast.
Involvement in disease
Defects in AXIN2 are involved in colorectal cancer (CRC) [MIM:114500]. They appear to be specifically associated with defective mismatch repair. Defects in AXIN2 are the cause of oligodontia-colorectal cancer syndrome (ODCRCS) [MIM:608615]. Affected individuals manifest severe tooth agenesis and colorectal cancer or precancerous lesions of variable types.
Contains 1 DIX domain. Contains 1 RGS domain.
The tankyrase-binding motif (also named TBD) is required for interaction with tankyrase TNKS and TNKS2.
Probably phosphorylated by GSK3B and dephosphorylated by PP2A. ADP-ribosylated by tankyrase TNKS and TNKS2. Poly-ADP-ribosylated protein is recognized by RNF146, followed by ubiquitination and subsequent activation of the Wnt signaling pathway. Ubiquitinated by RNF146 when poly-ADP-ribosylated, leading to its degradation and subsequent activation of the Wnt signaling pathway. Deubiquitinated by USP34, deubiquitinated downstream of beta-catenin stabilization step: deubiquitination is important Wnt signaling to positively regulate beta-catenin (CTNBB1)-mediated transcription.
SDS-PAGE - Axin 2 protein (Tagged-His Tag) (ab92262)
The image shows an electrophoretic assay performed using an Agilent 5100 ALP. In some images coloured control bands can be seen at 15 kDa (green) and/or 240 kDa (purple). The protein-specific band is blue.
