Further studies from the same group (Winn et al. 2006) indicate that combined expression of Wnt-7a and Frizzled-9 (Fz-9) in NSCLC cell lines inhibits transformed growth and that this antitumorigenic effect of Wnt7a and Fz-9 is mediated through ERK5-dependent activation of PPARγ. Wnt-5a, which is known to activate the Wnt/Ca2+ noncanonical pathway during development (Moon et al. 1997), has a controversial role in carcinogenesis. Wnt-5a is upregulated in some cancers (Saitoh et al. 2002) and can increase invasion of metastatic melanoma in a β-catenin- Wnt Signaling in Stem Cells and Lung Cancer 39 independent manner (Weeraratna et al.
