The presence of a TCF/LEF:beta catenin complex at the promoter is an preliminary requirement for the activation of transcription at many WNT target genes (reviewed in Saito-Diaz et al, 2013). The ability of the TCF/LEF:beta-catenin complex to bind DNA is negatively regulated by NLK-dependent phosphorylation (Ishitani et al, 2003b). WNT targets AXIN2, DKK1, c-MYC and CCND1 all show decreased expression in A549 cells treated with shRNAs against NLK (Lv et al, 2013).
