Kanazawa, A, Tsukada, S, Kamiyama, M, Yanagimoto, T, Nakajima, M and Maeda, S (2005) Wnt5b partially inhibits canonical Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway and promotes adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 preadipocytes. Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. 330:505-10

Abstract

To elucidate the functional roles of Wnt5b in adipogenesis, we characterized gene expression profiles in Wnt5b overexpressing 3T3-L1 cells using microarray analysis. Of the approximately 20,000 genes screened, we found that 85 genes were up-regulated and 211 genes were down-regulated in 3T3-L1 cells overexpressing Wnt5b. Among the genes regulated by Wnt5b, the expressions of insulin like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C), and WNT1 inducible signaling pathway protein 1 (WISP-1), which were known to be up-regulated by Wnt1/beta-catenin signaling, were decreased in the Wnt5b overexpressing cells. This result was subsequently confirmed by real-time quantitative RT-PCR (IGF-1; 0.74+/-0.08 and 0.56+/-0.08, WISP-1; 0.71+/-0.03 and 0.56+/-0.08, and VEGF-C; 0.67+/-0.01 and 0.80+/-0.07, mean+/-SEM, compared with the control at zero and two days after induction of differentiation, respectively). We also found that Wnt5b overexpression in 3T3-L1 preadipocytes was able to partially prevent the inhibitory effect of Wnt3a on adipogenesis. Furthermore, the overexpression of Wnt5b was able to inhibit Wnt3a-induced activation of the canonical Wnt/beta-catenin pathway as evidenced by the reduced translocation of beta-catenin into the nucleus. These findings indicate that Wnt5b may promote adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 cells, at least in part, by antagonizing the canonical Wnt/beta-catenin pathway.
