Measured by its ability to neutralize sFRP-5 inhibited Topflash reporter activity in the HEK293T human embryonic kidney cell line. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 2-10 μg/mL in the presence of 5 μg/mL Recombinant Human sFRP-5 and 100 ng/mL Recombinant Mouse Wnt-3a.

Topflash Reporter Activity Inhibited by sFRP‑5 and Neutralization by Human sFRP‑5 Antibody.
Recombinant Human sFRP‑5 (Catalog # 6266-SF) inhibits Recombinant Mouse Wnt‑3a (Catalog # 1324-WN) induced Topflash reporter activity in the HEK293T human embryonic kidney cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line), as measured by the Topflash Reporter Assay. Under these conditions, Topflash reporter activity inhibited by Recombinant Human sFRP‑5 (5 μg/mL) is neutralized (blue line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human sFRP‑5 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6266) in the presence of 100 ng/mL Recombinant Mouse Wnt‑3a. The ND50 is typically 2‑10 μg/mL.

Secreted Frizzled Related Protein-5 (sFRP-5), also known as SARP-3, belongs to a family of Wnt‑binding proteins with homology to the ligand‑binding domain of the Frizzled receptors. sFRPs are approximately 30-35 kDa in size and contain an N‑terminal Frizzled-like domain with 10 conserved cysteines and a Netrin-like C-terminal domain (1-3). Mature human sFRP-5 shares 96% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat sFRP-2 (4). During embryonic development, sFRP-5 is expressed in the anterior visceral endoderm, neural tube, foregut epithelium, and proliferating and prehypertrophic chondrocytes (5-8). sFRP-5 activity is required for the development of foregut, liver, ventral pancreas, and somites (6, 7). In the adult, sFRP-5 is expressed in the retinal pigment epithelium and pancreas (4, 9). sFRP-5 binds and antagonizes the function of mammalian Wnt-5a and Wnt-11 as well as Xenopus Xwnt-8, resulting in an inhibition of both canonical and non-canonical Wnt signaling (7, 9, 10). sFRP-5 down-regulation is common in breast and gastric cancer cells and is correlated with poor prognosis (11-13). It functions as a tumor suppressor by inhibiting epithelial-mesenchymal transition, invasiveness, and tumorigenicity of ovarian cancer cells (14). sFRP-5 plays an important role in maintaining glucose handling and insulin sensitivity (10). It is secreted by adipocytes and is down-regulated in mouse models of obesity and type 2 diabetes (10).
