Although it is well established that reactive oxygen species (ROS) can function as intracellular messengers, the mechanism of ROS dependent signaling is largely unknown (Rhee et al.,2005). In a recent paper in Nature Cell Biology, Funato et al. (2006) demonstrate that ROS can modulate signaling by the Wnt/beta-catenin pathway. This work provides interesting new insight into cross-talk between redox and Wnt/beta-catenin signaling in normal physiology and cancer.
