Inactivation of Chibby affects function of motile airway cilia

Abstract

Chibby (Cby) is a conserved component of the Wnt-beta-catenin pathway. Cby physically interacts with beta-catenin to repress its activation of transcription. To elucidate the function of Cby in vertebrates, we generated Cby(-/-) mice and found that after 2-3 d of weight loss, the majority of mice die before or around weaning. All Cby(-/-) mice develop… (More)
