Overview

Sonic hedgehog (Shh) is a member of the Hedgehog family of secreted signaling proteins that has a prominent role in patterning during early mammalian development (Ho & Scott). It is expressed during early embryogenesis in a variety of tissues (Finco et al.). During patterning of the central nervous system, Shh directly acts on cells to specify neural cell fates, regulates proliferation and survival of oligodendrocytes precursors and neural crest cells and stimulates proliferation, differentiation and axon growth (Ho & Scott; Martí). Shh also regulates T cell differentiation and activation (Crompton et al.). Recombinant human Shh (C24II; rhShh) is a fully biologically active molecule.

Data and Publications

Data

(A) The biological activity of Human Recombinant Shh (C24II) was tested by its ability to promote alkaline phosphatase production of CCL-226 cells. Alkaline phosphatase production was measured using a fluorometric assay method. The EC50 is defined as the effective concentration of the growth factor at which cell proliferation is at 50% of maximum. The EC50 in the above example 0.7 μg/mL.
(B) 4 μg of Human Recombinant Shh (C24II) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (+) and non-reducing (-) conditions and visualized by Coomassie Blue staining. Human Recombinant Shh (C24II) has a predicted molecular mass of 19.7 kDa.
