LZTS1 is a tumor suppressor protein that is widely expressed in normal tissues. It is involved in regulating cell growth and is also thought to interact with the active CDC2-cyclin B1 complex and contribute to the regulation of the cell cycle and the prevention of uncontrolled cell proliferation. Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) in the 8p arm is a common characteristic of many types of cancer, and this gene is located on 8p22.

LZTS1 may be considered for further preclinical testing as a tumor biomarker.
LZTS1 was overexpressed in ovarian cancer relative to normal ovary and relative to a panel of normal organs. LZTS1 was found in small and larger blood vessels. FZD10 showed limited or no expression by qRT-PCR in normal tissues.
