The sonic hedgehog (SHH) pathway is activated in several types of malignancy and plays an important role in tumor cell proliferation and tumorigenesis. SHH binding to a 12-pass transmembrane receptor, Patched (PTCH), leads to freeing of Smoothened (SMO) and subsequent activation of GLI transcription factors. In the present study, we analyzed the expression(More)

MATERIALS AND METHODS Data from the Florida Cancer Data System, the Agency for Health Care Administration, and the US Census were linked for MBC patients (n = 1589). Survival time was our primary end(More)
