Wnt glycoproteins have been implicated in diverse processes during embryonic patterning in metazoa. They signal through frizzled-type seven-transmembrane-domain receptors to stabilize β-catenin. Wnt signalling is antagonized by the extracellular Wnt inhibitor dickkopf1 (dkk1), which is a member of a multigene family. dkk1 was initially identified as a head inducer in Xenopus embryos but the mechanism by which it blocks Wnt signalling is unknown. LDL-receptor-related protein 6 (LRP6) is required… Expand
Kremen proteins are Dickkopf receptors that regulate Wnt/β-catenin signalling
TLDR
Kremen1 and Kremen2 are components of a membrane complex modulating canonical Wnt signalling through LRP6 in vertebrates that functionally cooperate with Dkk1 to block Wnt/β-catenin signalling. Expand
Casein kinase 1 γ couples Wnt receptor activation to cytoplasmic signal transduction
TLDR
The identification of Xenopus Casein kinase 1 γ (CK1γ), a membrane-bound member of the CK1 family is described, revealing an evolutionarily conserved mechanism that couples Wnt receptor activation to the cytoplasmic signal transduction apparatus. Expand
A mechanism for Wnt coreceptor activation.
TLDR
This study identifies a critical signaling module and a key phosphorylation-dependent activation step of the Wnt receptor complex and reveals a unifying logic for transmembrane signaling by Wnts, growth factors, and cytokines. Expand
Kremen2 modulates Dickkopf2 activity during Wnt/LRP6 signaling.
TLDR
It is shown that Kremen2 (Krm2) regulates Dkk2 activity during Wnt signaling, and interaction with Krm2 is mediated by the second cysteine-rich domain of Dkks, suggesting that Krm 2 can function as a switch that turns DKK2 from an activator into an inhibitor of Wnt/lRP6 signaling. Expand
A Novel Set of Wnt-Frizzled Fusion Proteins Identifies Receptor Components That Activate β-Catenin-dependent Signaling*
TLDR
The data suggest that the distinction between the two Wnt classes lies not in intrinsic differences in the molecules but via the Frizzled molecules with which they interact, and this could help clarify mechanisms of Wnt signal transduction specificity in both Xenopus embryos and 293T cells. Expand
Truncated mutants of the putative Wnt receptor LRP6/Arrow can stabilize β-catenin independently of Frizzled proteins
TLDR
A structure–function analysis of Frizzled and LRP proteins that have been implicated in Wnt1 signaling finds that LRP6/Arrow proteins deleted for their extracellular domain are able to activate the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway, and shows that the PPSP motifs within the intracellular domain of LRP 6 are required for signaling. Expand
Analysis of Dickkopf3 interactions with Wnt signaling receptors
TLDR
It is reported that, contrary to previous studies, Dkk3 interacts with Krm1 and Krm2, but did not interact with, or alter expression of, LRP6. Expand
Wnt signals across the plasma membrane to activate the β-catenin pathway by forming oligomers containing its receptors, Frizzled and LRP
TLDR
This model takes into account several observations reported here: the identification of intracellular residues of Frizzled required for β-catenin signaling and for recruitment of Dvl to the plasma membrane; evidence that Wnt3A binds to the ectodomains of LRP andFrizzled; and demonstrations that a requirement for Wnt ligand can be abrogated by chimeric receptors that allow formation of Frizzle-LRP hetero-oligomers. Expand
The Wnt antagonist DICKKOPF-1 gene is a downstream target of β-catenin/TCF and is downregulated in human colon cancer
TLDR
The data indicate that the Wnt/β-catenin pathway is downregulated by the induction of DKK-1 expression, a mechanism that is lost in colon cancer. Expand
LDL receptor-related proteins 5 and 6 in Wnt/β-catenin signaling: Arrows point the way
TLDR
This review highlights recent progress and unresolved issues in understanding the function and regulation of Arrow/Lrp5/Llrp6 in Wnt signaling, and discusses Arrows interactions with Wnt and the Frizzled family of Wnt receptors, and with the intracellular β-catenin degradation apparatus. Expand

LDL-receptor-related proteins in Wnt signal transduction
TLDR
In Xenopus embryos, LRP6 activated Wnt–Fz signalling, and induced Wnt responsive genes, dorsal axis duplication and neural crest formation, indicating that LRP 6 may be a component of the Wnt receptor complex. Expand
Mutual antagonism between dickkopf1 and dickkopf2 regulates Wnt/β-catenin signalling
TLDR
It is reported that a related family member, Dkk2, activates rather than inhibits the Wnt/beta-catenin signalling pathway in Xenopus embryos and suggests that a coordinated interplay between inhibiting dkk1 and activating dkk2 can modulate Fz signalling. Expand
arrow encodes an LDL-receptor-related protein essential for Wingless signalling
TLDR
It is shown that arrow gene function is essential in cells receiving Wingless input and that it acts upstream of Dishevelled, suggesting a new and conserved function for this LRP subfamily in Wingless/Wnt signal reception. Expand
An LDL-receptor-related protein mediates Wnt signalling in mice
TLDR
Evidence is presented that a new member of the low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-receptor-related protein family, LRP6, is critical for Wnt signalling in mice, and a genetic enhancement of a Wnt mutant phenotype in mice lacking one functional copy of LRP 6 is shown. Expand
A new secreted protein that binds to Wnt proteins and inhibits their activites
TLDR
Wnt-inhibitory factor-1 (WIF-1) is described, a secreted protein that binds to Wnt proteins and inhibits their activities, and results indicate that WNT proteins interact with structurally diverse extracellular inhibitors to fine-tune the spatial and temporal patterns of Wnt activity. Expand

TLDR
Over the past two years the understanding of Wnt signaling has been substantially improved by the identification of Frizzled proteins as cell surface receptors for Wnts and by the finding that beta-catenin, a component downstream of the receptor, can translocate to the nucleus and function as a transcriptional activator.
