barhl2 stabilizes the interaction between tcf7l1 and groucho/tle
barhl2 interacts with tcf7l1 independently of groucho/tle
barhl2 limits beta catenin driven pTopFlash activation in HEK cells ( effect is dose depenedent)
in Xtr.Tg wnt reporter line, ( from Vlem lab) barhl2 limits beta catenin induction of gfp reporter [via immunoprecip, BD shows that], barhl2 increases grouch/tle oligomerisation in a acomplex containing tcf7l1 and hdac1
hdac1 inhibition rescues the barhl2 GOF phenotype in Xla embryos.
