Definition of WNT1 Inducible Signaling Pathway Protein-3

Encoded by human oncogene WISP3 Gene (CCN Family), the 354-amino acid 39.3 kD WNT1 Inducible Signaling pathway protein 3 constitutes – with WISP1 and WISP2 – one of three factors downstream in the WNT signaling pathway relevant to malignant transformation. CCN proteins are cell- and tissue-specific cysteine-rich secreted factors with roles in cell growth and differentiation. WISP3 protein is essential for skeletal growth and cartilage homeostasis — mutations are associated with progressive pseudorheumatoid dysplasia. WISP3 is over expressed in colon tumors.
