Figure 4 Interaction between Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway and HCV core protein. HCV core protein increases the expression of Fzd and LRP5/6, decreases the expression of sFRPs and Dickkopf and suppresses the E-cadherin gene promoter. The components shown are explained in more detail in the text. sFRPs: Secreted Frizzled-related proteins; WIF: Wnt inhibitory factor; DKK: Dickkopf WNT signaling pathway inhibitor; LRP5/6: Low-density-lipoprotein-related protein 5/6; Fzd: Frizzled; CDH1: E-cadherin; DVL: Dishevelled segment polarity protein; GSK3: Glycogen synthase kinase 3; CK1: Casein kinase 1; UB: Ubiquitin protein; APC: Adenomatous polyposis coli; TCF/LEF: Transcription factor/lymphoid enhancer-binding factor.
