Abstract

We describe here a technique for delivering the porcupine inhibitor WNT974 (formerly LGK974) in mice. The protocol entails once-a-day oral delivery of WNT974 for up to 3 months at a concentration sufficient to achieve systemic Wnt pathway inhibition with limited toxicity as measured by weight change. This route of delivery enables extended durations of Wnt signaling inhibition in a mammalian model organism.
