The Hedgehog (Hh) pathway regulates proliferation in a variety of tissues, however its specific effects on the cell cycle are unclear. During retinal proliferation in particular, the role of Hh has been controversial, with studies variably suggesting a stimulatory or an inhibitory effect on proliferation. Our recent data provide an underlying mechanism, which reconciles these different views. We showed that Hh signaling in the retina accelerates the G(1) and G(2) phases of the cell cycle and… CONTINUE READING
