a protein in the WNT/planar cell polarity (PCP) signaling pathway. Dvl2-deficient mice indicate that Dvl2 is essential for normal cardiac morphogenesis, somite segmentation and neural tube closure. Transduces the Wnt signal by interacting with the cytoplasmic Axin complex. Dvl and Axin each contain a DIX domains, which mediate their dynamic polymerization. The Dvl-Axin interaction is essential for Wnt signaling. Interacts through its PDZ domain with the C-terminal regions of VANGL1 and VANGL2. Interacts with Dixin and Rac. There is functional redundancy between Dvl1 and Dvl2 in some phenotypes. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Adaptor/scaffold; Motility/polarity/chemotaxis
