FZD6 is a Frizzled Receptor for Wnt signaling proteins involved in patterning during development. Contrary to other Frizzled proteins, FZD6 does not contain a C-terminal PDZ domain-binding motif. FZD6 is widely expressed. The Drosophila homolog activates Dishevelled. FZD6 expression has been reported in brain, colon, heart, kidney, liver, lung, ovary, pancreas, placenta, prostate, skeletal muscle, small intestine, testis, and thymus. Various tumor cell lines have also been shown to express FZD6. ESTs have been isolated from blood, brain, breast, connective tissue, liver, liver/spleen, lung, placenta, testis, thyroid, and vessel libraries. In addition, several ESTs have been isolated from tumor libraries.
