SFRP1 / SARP2 Molecule Background

Secreted frizzled-related protein 1 (SFRP1) also known as Secreted apoptosis-related protein 2 (SARP2), FRP, FRP1, is a member of the SFRP family that contains a cysteine-rich domain homologous to the putative Wnt-binding site of Frizzled proteins. SFRPs act as soluble modulators of Wnt signaling. The Secreted frizzled-related protein (SFRP) family consists of five secreted glycoproteins in humans (SFRP1, SFRP2, SFRP3, SFRP4, SFRP5) that act as extracellular signaling ligands. SFRP1 / SARP-2 is widely expressed and absent from lung, liver and peripheral blood leukocytes, and with the highest levels in heart and fetal kidney. SARP2 / SFRP-1 is a 35 kDa prototypical member of the SFRP family. SARP2 / FRP-1 acts as a biphasic modulator of Wnt signaling, counteracting Wnt-induced effects at high concentrations and promoting them at lower concentrations.
