Research overview

Diversification of TCF family genes

The TCF family genes are the major mediators of Wnt/β-catenin signalling, which is necessary during development and has been found altered in different diseases, such as cancer and diabetes.

Comparing vertebrates and invertebrates reveals a huge diversity of vertebrate TCF transcription factors, which may lead to subfunctionalization and/or neo-functionalization of vertebrate TCFs.

This proyect aim to understand vertebrate-specific functions of Wnt/β-catenin signalling, which will be ultimately relevant for human and animal disease.
