DKK-1 ELISA - now CE marked for IVD use in EU

Dickkopf-1(DKK-1) is a 28.67 kDa secreted protein that acts as soluble inhibitor of the WNT signalling pathway. This pathway contains lipid-modified glycoproteins that activate cell surface receptor-mediated signal transduction to regulate cell activities like: cell fate, proliferation, migration, polarity and gene expression. DKK-1 regulates developmental processes of all kinds. Thus, DKK-1 is also involved in the regulation of bone metabolism as it effects osteoblast differentiation and in regulation of tumourgenetic activity.
