Roughing Up Smoothened: Chemical Modulators of Hedgehog Signaling
CitationKing, Randall W. 2002. Roughing up Smoothened: Chemical modulators of Hedgehog signaling. Journal of Biology 1(2): 8.
AbstractSmall-molecule antagonists of Hedgehog-pathway signaling, such as cyclopamine, have been known for some time. Now, small-molecule agonists of the Hedgehog pathway have also been identified. The finding that both antagonists and agonists target the protein Smoothened supports the emerging hypothesis that Smoothened may be regulated by endogenous small molecules.
