FH535 is a Potent Inhibitor of Wnt/β-catenin and PPAR

The Wnt signaling pathway is important in normal development and in cancer. This signaling pathway is regulated by Wnt ligands, the APC-Axin complex and β-catenin. Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway plays a central role in regulating the balance between stem cell growth and differentiation. Thus, the degree of Wnt signaling activation...

CWP232228 is a Highly Potent and Selective Wnt/β-catenin Inhibitor

Conventional chemotherapy and radiation induce more and more breast cancer stem cells (BCSC) resistance. In recent years, increasing studies have suggested that the dysregulation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling occurs in breast cancer. A study from Gyu-Beom Jang, the researchers showed that the level of Wnt/β-catenin signaling in BCSC is relatively...

A Potent and Specific Tankyrase Inhibitor RK-287107, Blocks Colorectal Cancer Cell Growth

Wnt/β-catenin signaling is activated in over 90% of human colorectal cancer. In particular, loss-of-function mutations of the tumor suppressor adenomatous polyposis coli (APC), a key negative regulator of Wnt/β-catenin signaling, occur in 90% of patients. The secreted Frizzled-related proteins (sFRPs) and Wnt inhibitory protein (WIF) regulate Wnt/b-catenin signaling. Both...
