Segment polarity protein dishevelled homolog DVL-2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the DVL2 gene.[1][2]

This gene encodes a member of the dishevelled (dsh) protein family. The vertebrate dsh proteins have approximately 40% amino acid sequence similarity with Drosophila dsh. This gene encodes a 90-kD protein that undergoes posttranslational phosphorylation to form a 95-kD cytoplasmic protein, which may play a role in the signal transduction pathway mediated by multiple Wnt proteins. The mechanisms of dishevelled function in Wnt signaling are likely to be conserved among metazoans.[2]


DVL2 has been shown to interact with Zinc finger protein 165,[3] DAB2[4] and Arrestin beta 1.[5]
