  • Function
    Receptor 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. Interacts specifically with Wnt5A to induce the beta-catenin pathway.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor Fz/Smo family.
    Contains 1 FZ (frizzled) domain.
  • Domain
    The PDZ-binding motif mediates interaction with GOPC.
    Lys-Thr-X-X-X-Trp motif interacts with the PDZ doman of Dvl (Disheveled) family members and is involved in the activation of the Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway.
    The FZ domain is involved in binding with Wnt ligands.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Golgi apparatus membrane. Localized at the plasma membrane and also found at the Golgi.

Thank you very much for keeping me updated about the results, and I am so glad to hear that the new lot is working better than the previous one.

We currently only have this newer lot in stock. If you'd like, you can contact me before placing another order and I can check our stock to make sure this is still the case. You can also request a specific lot number anytime you place an order with us.

Please let me know if there is anything else that I can do for you or if you have any questions. Have a great day.

Thank you very much for contacting us with your question, and for your patience while I have been in touch with the lab regarding this antibody.

The predicted molecular weight is based only on the precursor amino acid sequence of Frizzled 5, and after the signal peptide is cleaved the protein will have a lower molecular weight. The lower band below 62 kDa corresponds to the cleaved mature protein. The lab scientists have not further characterized the higher band above 200 kDa, and ithas been hypothesized that this isan aggregate of the protein, but I haven't found support for this in the literature. The image shows a transfected lysate, so perhaps it is a product of the transfection, but it may also be a non-specific band. Could you tell me what kind of lysates you are using? How are the samples prepared? What blocking solution is used, and what dilution of antibody has been tried? What is the lot number associated to each of these vials that you've tried?

I look forward to hearing from you. We do fully guarantee this antibody to work in the tested species and applications listed on the datasheet for up to 6 months after purchase, so if the results are not satisfactory we may be able to send a replacement or issue a credit or refund.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or if there is anything else that we can do for you, and I'll be happy to help.

Thank you for your enquiry. We currently have three antibodies against Frizzled 5. Further to clarification with the lab, only one of them has been tested for use in western blot; Frizzled 5 antibody (ab14475). I have uploaded an image of this immunoblot to the datasheet. You can examine this by clicking on the link below. I hope this information helps, please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
