    Hao Wu
    Department of Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts 02118, USA
    J Cell Biochem 108:52-63. 2009
    ..In addition, the increased recruitment of GSK3beta to the destruction complex in the presence of activated beta-catenin mutants could be a feedback mechanism to suppress overactive Wnt signaling...
