Shh/Ihh antibody detects both the precursor and mature forms of transfected Shh and transfected Ihh. It is also expected to recognize Shh from cat, dog, chicken and zebra fish based on homology.

Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology:

Human, Rat

Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Glu71 of human Shh. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.

Hedgehog proteins (Hh) are secreted signaling proteins that play many roles during animal development. Aberrant Hh signaling activity can be associated with numerous birth defects and uncontrolled Hh pathway activation is linked to the development of several types of cancers (1-2). The three identified vertebrate Hh genes are Sonic (Shh), Indian (Ihh) and Desert (Dhh), all of which have distinct as well as overlapping roles (3-5). Hh proteins are synthesized as 45 kDa precursors that undergo auto-cleavage to generate a 19 kDa amino-terminal peptide (Hh-N) and a carboxy-terminal peptide (Hh-C). The amino-terminal peptide becomes covalently attached to a cholesterol molecule at its carboxy terminus and acetylated at its amino terminus. This doubly modified Hh-N peptide is released from cells and responsible for all known Hedgehog signaling activity (6).
