Sonic hedgehog protein

Status

Functioni

Intercellular signal essential for a variety of patterning events during development and metamorphosis. Involved in limb formation, patterning of the central nervous system and ventral somite differentiation. Induces ectopic cement gland formation in embryos. Binds to the patched (PTC) receptor, which functions in association with smoothened (SMO), to activate the transcription of target genes. In the absence of SHH, PTC represses the constitutive signaling activity of SMO (By similarity).By similarity3 Publications

Post-translational modificationi

The C-terminal domain displays an autoproteolysis activity and a cholesterol transferase activity. Both activities result in the cleavage of the full-length protein and covalent attachment of a cholesterol moiety to the C-terminal of the newly generated N-terminal fragment (N-product). The N-product is the active species in both local and long-range signaling, whereas the C-product has no signaling activity.
Cholesterylation is required for N-product targeting to lipid rafts and multimerization.By similarity
N-palmitoylation of Cys-25 by HHAT is required for N-product multimerization and full activity.By similarity

Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

Strongly expressed in notochord and neural floor plate during embryogenesis. In tadpole, high expression is observed in pancreas/stomach, moderate expression in tail, and low expression in intestine, brain, and hind limb.3 Publications

Developmental stagei

First detected at the neurula (stages 16-17). First peak of expression around tadpole hatching (stages 33-40). High expression observed in intestine at the climax of morphogenesis (stages 60-62) when intestine epithelial undergoes morphogenesis.3 Publications

100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
