Sonic Hedgehog

Sonic Hedgehog (SHH) is a protein that plays a key role in the growth and development of many organisms. It is also important in the adult organism, where it controls cell division of adult stem cells. In addition, Sonic Hedgehog has also been implicated in the development of certain kinds of tumors.

A mutant version of the hedgehog gene causes Drosophila (fruit fly) embryos to be covered with small pointy projections, resembling a hedgehog. Sonic Hedgehog plays an important role in the growth of cutaneous appendages like hair, feathers, and scales, as well as limb and gut development.

Found in several different species including mouse, fruit fly, and human, SHH is an essential protein for vertebrate and invertebrate development. SHH acts as an axonal guidance cue, assuming various roles during the development of the central nervous system (CNS) in vertebrates.

In addition to the SHH ligand, Sigma-Aldrich offers several Hedgehog signaling pathway inhibitors for your research endeavors.
