The inhibitory mechanism is completely unrelated to CsA's immunosuppressive activities, making SFRP1 a new and highly promising therapeutic target for anti-hair loss strategies, the University of Manchester said.
They said the inhibitory mechanism is unrelated to CsA's immunosuppressive activities, making SFRP1 a "highly promising" therapeutic target for anti-hair loss strategies.
They found that WAY-316606 was even better at suppressing the SFRP1 protein and didn't have side effects.

We first looked at mRNA expression of SFRP1, SFRP2, SFRP4, and SFRP5 in MPM cell lines; SFRP3 was not included as it does not have a distinctive CpG island.
In obesity it has been observed that mRNA levels of SFRP1-4, but not SFRP5, were altered; finding that SFRP1, SFRP2 and SFRP4 are adipokines and their expressions correlated with insulin sensitivity [75].
reported that aberrant promoter methylation of SFRP1 was associated with an overall shorter survival of patients with breast cancer [31].
Some of the affected genes included C-X-C motif chemokine 12 (CXCL12) that is a chemokine strongly chemotactic for lymphocytes [14]; glial cell-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) that strongly promotes the survival of neurons [15] and prevents apoptosis of motor neurons; secreted frizzled-related protein 1 (SFRP1) that acts as a biphasic modulator of Wnt signaling, counteracting Wnt-induced effects at high concentrations and promoting them at lower concentrations [16]; which may also affect the differentiation of photo receptors [17]; and superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) that is associated with macular degeneration when its levels drops below normal [18].
In an integrated genetic/epigenetic approach, Serizawa et al (94) prospectively performed mutational screening of a set of 6 genes (FGFR3, PIK3CA, TP53, HRAS, NRAS, and KRAS) and quantitatively assessed promoter methylation status of 11 additional genes (APC, ARF, DBC1, INK4A, RARB, RASSF1A, SFRP1, SFRP2, SFRP4, SFRP5, and WIF1) in NMI-BC tumor biopsy specimens and corresponding urine samples from 118 patients and 33 controls.
SFRP1 antagonizes canonical Wnt signaling either by interacting with Wnts to prevent them from associating with Fzd receptors or by binding directly to frizzled proteins to form a nonfunctional complex (53).
In the women whose biopsy results did not indicate cancer, methylation of another tumor suppressor gene, called SFRP1, was more common in milk from the biopsied breast than the other breast.
