NDRG2 Contributes to the regulation of the Wnt signaling pathway. Down-regulates CTNNB1-mediated transcriptional activation of target genes, such as CCND1, and may thereby act as tumor suppressor. May be involved in dendritic cell and neuron differentiation. Belongs to the NDRG family. Highly expressed in brain, heart, skeletal muscle and salivary gland, and moderately in kidney and liver. Expressed in dendritic cells, but not in other blood cells. Expression levels are low in pancreatic and liver cancer tissues; absent in meningioma. Expressed in low-grade gliomas but present at low levels in glioblastoma. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are present in brain neurons and up-regulated in Alzheimer disease (at protein level). 6 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.
