levels of Wnt-5 and -7, Fzd-4 and -10, and Pdgfa (encoding wingless proteins 5 and 7, frizzled receptors 4 and 10 and plateletderived growth factor, respectively) and expression of Dkk1 (encoding dikkopf) was not detected. For an overview of the effects of maternal smoking during pregnancy on the Wnt pathway in the lung tissue of offspring, see figure 2 in the online supplement. To our knowledge, this is the first report showing that maternal smoking during pregnancy decreases the expression of… CONTINUE READING
