In the hedgehog signaling network, mutations result in various phenotypes, including, among others, holoprosencephaly, nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, Pallister‐Hall syndrome, Greig cephalopolysyndactyly, Rubinstein‐Taybi syndrome, isolated basal cell carcinoma, and medulloblastoma. Active Hedgehog ligand is double lipid modified with a C‐terminal cholesterol moiety and an N‐terminal palmitate. Transport active Hedgehog from the signaling cell to the responding cell occurs through three… Expand

In vertebrate hedgehog signaling, hedgehog ligands are processed to become bilipidated and then multimerize, which allows them to leave the signaling cell via Dispatched 1 and become transported viaExpand
Signalling Pathways Driving Cancer Stem Cells: Hedgehog Pathway
TLDR
The hedgehog (Hh) pathway is one of the fundamental signal transduction pathways in animal development and is also involved in stem-cell maintenance and carcinogenesis, and is implicated in cancer development in both inherited and sporadic cancers. Expand
Mechanistic Insights into the Generation and Transduction of Hedgehog Signaling.
TLDR
This research provides mechanistic insights into how HH signaling is generated and transduced from the cell surface into the intercellular space and will aid in facilitating the treatment of HH-related diseases. Expand
Sex and hedgehog: roles of genes in the hedgehog signaling pathway in mammalian sexual differentiation
TLDR
Current findings on the roles of hedgehog signaling in the sexually dimorphic development of the reproductive organs with an emphasis on mammals and comparative evidence in other species are reviewed. Expand
The hedgehog signaling network, mammary stem cells, and breast cancer: connections and controversies.

TLDR
In this review, genetic regulation of mammary gland development by hedgehog network genes is outlined, highlighting a developing controversy as to whether activated hedgehog signaling regulates normal regenerative mammary epithelial stem cells or, indeed, whether activated Hedgehog signaling functions at all in ductal development.

Smoothened Signal Transduction Is Promoted by G Protein-Coupled Receptor Kinase 2
TLDR
It is found that G protein-coupled receptor kinase 2 (GRK2) promotes the association between active Smoothened and β-arrestin 2, and Gli-dependent signaling, mediated by coexpression of Smoothensed and GRK2, is diminished by β-arsenin 2 knockdown with shRNA. Expand
Regulation of Hedgehog signaling: a complex story.
TLDR
The mechanism(s) by which Ptc and Smo communicate with the HSC in response to differential ligand concentrations to regulate Ci function are not yet fully elucidated, concentrating on the mechanisms by which the Hh signal is propagated through Smo to the H SC. Expand
The hedgehog signaling pathway in cancer.
TLDR
Several studies have shown reduced growth of tumor cells in response to inhibition of Hh signaling, suggesting a value for inhibiting pathway activity in a clinical setting. Expand
The Patched Receptor: Switching On/Off the Hedgehog Signaling Pathway
TLDR
This chapter focuses on recent advances that shed some light on how Ptc may operate in the cell, which seems mediated, at least in part, by the transmembrane protein Dispatched, which has a structure very similar to Ptc. Expand
Hedgehog/GLI Signaling Pathway: Transduction, Regulation, and Implications for Disease
TLDR
This review is intended to summarize the current understanding of the Hh/GLI signaling, non-canonical mechanisms of pathway activation, its implication in disease, and the current therapeutic strategies targeting this cascade. Expand

Sonic hedgehog signaling by the Patched–Smoothened receptor complex
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Smo is the signaling component of a multicomponent Hh receptor complex and that Ptc is a ligand-regulated inhibitor of Smo. Expand
The sterol-sensing domain of Patched protein seems to control Smoothened activity through Patched vesicular trafficking
TLDR
A role of the SSD of Ptc in mediating the vesicular trafficking of PTC to regulate Smoothened activity is suggested. Expand

This review focuses specifically on the current understanding of the Shh-Ptch-Gli pathway and its clinical significance in humans. Expand
Patched represses the Hedgehog signalling pathway by promoting modification of the Smoothened protein
TLDR
These findings suggest that Smo is modified to yield a non-functional form and this modification is promoted by Ptc in a non -stoichiometric manner. Expand
The patched signaling pathway in tumorigenesis and development: lessons from animal models
TLDR
The Sonic Hedgehog/Patched/Smoothened signaling pathway is thus rapidly emerging as one of the most important regulators of oncogenic transformation and plays an important role during mammalian embryonic development. Expand
smoothened encodes a receptor-like serpentine protein required for hedgehog signalling
TLDR
It is shown that the segment-polarity gene smoothened is required for the response of cells to hedgehog signalling during the development of both the embryonic segments and imaginal discs. Expand
Megalin Functions as an Endocytic Sonic Hedgehog Receptor*
TLDR
Findings show that megalin is an efficient endocytic receptor for N-Shh, and implicate megal in as a new regulatory component of the Shh signaling pathway. Expand
Patched acts catalytically to suppress the activity of Smoothened
TLDR
It is reported that Ptc and Smo are not significantly associated within Hh-responsive cells and it is suggested that the Ptc tumour suppressor functions normally as a transmembrane molecular transporter, which acts indirectly to inhibit Smo activity, possibly through changes in distribution or concentration of a small molecule. Expand
Vertebrate Hedgehog signalling modulated by induction of a Hedgehog-binding protein
TLDR
These findings support a model in which Hip attenuates Hedgehog signalling as a result of binding to Hedgehog proteins: a negative regulatory feedback loop established in this way could thus modulate the responses to any Hedgehog signal. Expand
Characterization of two patched receptors for the vertebrate hedgehog protein family.
TLDR
Biochemical analysis of PTCH and PTCH2 shows that they both bind to all hedgehog family members with similar affinity and that they can form a complex with SMO, and Chromosomal localization ofPTCH2 places it on chromosome 1p33-34, a region deleted in some germ cell tumors, raising the possibility that PTCH 2 may be a tumor suppressor in Dhh target cells.
