Purity Confirmation> 90% by SDS-PAGE & Coomassie stain
Length [aa]328
Molecular Weight36.9 kDa
N Terminal SequenceMIIGA
Species ReactivityHuman
Buffer50 mM acetic acid
ReconstitutionHuman Wnt5a should be reconstituted in water to a concentration of 0.1 mg/ml. This solution can be diluted in water or other buffer solutions or stored at -20°C.
Stability and StorageThe lyophilized human Wnt5a, though stable at room temperature, is best stored desiccated below 0°C. Reconstituted human Wnt5a should be stored in working aliquots at -20°C.
SynonymsWnt-5a; Wnt5a; Wnt 5a; Wnt
DescriptionWnt-5a is one of the most highly investigated non-canonical Wnts and has been implicated in almost all aspects of non-canonical Wnt signalling. In terms of cancer development, Wnt-5a has, until recently, lived in the shadow of its better-characterised relatives. This was largely because of its apparent inability to transform cells or signal through the canonical beta-catenin pathway that is so important in cancer, particularly colorectal cancer. Recent work in a wide range of human tumours has pointed to a critical role for Wnt-5a in malignant progression, but there is conflicting evidence whether Wnt-5a has a tumour-promoting or -suppressing role. Emerging evidence suggests that the functions of Wnt-5a can be drastically altered depending on the availability of key receptors. Hence, the presence or absence of these receptors may go some way to explain the conflicting role of Wnt-5a in different cancers.
