ZNRF3 has been shown to ubiquitinate FZD4 in vivo, and inhibition of ZNRF3/RNF43 increases the protein levels of LRP6 and FZD8 at the cell surface (Hao et al, 2012; Jiang et al, 2013). Degradation of FZD and LRP is abrogated upon treatment of cells with bafilomycin A1 but not with MG132, suggesting that degradation of the receptors occurs in the lysosome. Consistent with this, mutational analysis suggests that FZD4 is multi-monoubiquitinated (Mukai et al, 2010).
