Abstract: Wnt signaling pathways are essential for embryonic patterning and are disturbed in a wide spectrum
of diseases, including cancer. An unresolved question is how the different Wnt pathways are
supported and regulated. Here, we review how the PDZ domain-interacting C-terminal region of the
Wnt receptor Frizzled can impact on the outcome of Wnt signaling. PDZ domains are interaction
domains often found in multi-domain scaffolding proteins. PDZ scaffolds assemble specific proteins
into large molecular complexes at defined locations in the cell but can also regulate the dynamic
trafficking of target proteins. The impact of PDZ proteins in Wnt signaling has probably been underinvestigated
and further studies might help to understand several unresolved aspects.
