R&D Systems is the first company to offer a bioactive form of Recombinant Mouse Secreted Frizzled-related Protein 5 (sFRP-5). The new recombinant sFRP-5 is tested by R&D Systems for its ability to suppress signaling by Wnt-3a. Related research suggests that sFRP-5 is a tumor suppressor and low levels are associated with a poor prognosis in certain cancers. sFRP-5 is secreted by adipocytes and may also have a role in glucose homeostasis and insulin-sensitivity.
