Wnt signaling: it gets more humorous with age

Curr Biol. 2007 Nov 6;17(21):R923-5. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2007.08.062.


In addition to its myriad of contributions in development, disease and regeneration, recent research implicates the Wnt/beta-catenin signaling cascade in yet another biological process - aging. The latest role of Wnt uncovers new complexities and opportunities for modulating the Wnt/beta-catenin pathway in regenerative medicine.
