90% of sporadic colorectal carcinomas carry loss-of-function mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene, which encodes a scaffolding protein mediating constitutive destruction of the ?-catenin transcriptional co-activator in the absence of Wnt ligand. DKFZ inventors detected NKD1 and C10orf54 as biomarkers for identification of Wnt/?-catenin modulating compounds, such as small molecules, interfering RNAs, peptides and antibodies and thus can be used for the development of a kit or an assay for detection of such compounds. This kit or assay can additionally be used as a companion diagnostic resource to identify patients in need of a treatment that modulates the Wnt/?-catenin signaling pathway (e.g. targeted therapy).
