Background Information

Sonic hedgehog (SHH) is a member of the Hedgehog (Hh) family of proteins that control cell growth, survival, 

and fate.

What is the molecular weight of SHH?

The molecular weight of SHH is approximately 45 kDa, but it is cleaved autocatalytically to generate a 20 kDa 

N-terminal fragment and a 25 kDa C-terminal fragment responsible for hedgehog biological activity and the 

auto-processing machinery respectively (PMID: 10753901).

What is the tissue specificity of SHH?

SHH is the most broadly expressed mammalian Hh signaling molecule. During early vertebrate development, 

SHH is expressed in midline tissues such as the node, notochord, and floor plate to control the left-right and 

dorso-ventral patterning of the embryo (PMID: 12729563). SHH is expressed in fetal intestine, liver, kidney, 

and lung tissue, but is not expressed in adult tissues.

What is the cellular localization of SHH?

SHH is localized to the cell membrane. The N-terminal fragment is associated with lipid rafts at the cell surface, 

whereas the C-terminal fragment diffuses from the cell.

What is the role of SHH in the Sonic hedgehog signaling pathway?

This pathway is one of the major trafficking networks that regulate key events during developmental growth 

and patterning (PMID: 19368798). Loss of SHH signaling and regulation has been implicated in birth defects, 

tissue regeneration, stem cell renewal, and cancer growth (PMID: 15549094). The regulatory action of the SHH 

pathway is linked to the secretion, uptake, and translocation of the SHH protein; a ligand precursor, which is 

implicated in the regulation of the central nervous system polarity and neural patterning (PMID: 11130178,
