Wnt signaling regulates cell fate decisions and cell proliferation during development and in adult tissues in both invertebrates and vertebrates. Here we describe the identification of Wnt genes, Wnt2a, 4, 5a, 5b, 6 and 11, expressed in mouse embryonic gut development. Each of these genes exhibits a characteristic and regional-specific expression pattern along the anterior-posterior axis of the digestive tube between embryonic day (E) 12.5 and 16.5 of embryonic development. The expression of… CONTINUE READING
