Pharmacokinetics and Biodistribution of GDC-0449 Loaded Micelles in Normal and Liver Fibrotic Mice

19 views | Sep 26 2019

Dutta R et al. showed that M6P-conjugated GDC-0449 loaded mixed micelles may be used as a potential drug delivery vehicle for treating liver fibrosis. [Read the Full Post]

Cellular Cholesterol Directly Activates Smoothened in Hedgehog Signaling

18 views | Sep 23 2019

Huang P et al. proposed that the endogenous Smoothened activator is cholesterol, not oxysterols, and that vertebrate Hedgehog signaling controls Smoothened by regulating its access to cholesterol. [Read the Full Post]

Combining Smoothened Agonist and NEL-Like Protein-1 Enhances Bone Healing

148 views | Apr 12 2019

Lee S et al. suggested that combining the hedgehog signaling agonist SAG and NELL-1 has potential as a novel therapeutic strategy for the healing of critical-size bone defects. Future directions will include optimization of dosage and delivery strategy for an SAG and NELL-1 combination product. [Read the Full Post]

Cyclopamine: from cyclops lambs to cancer treatment

113 views | Mar 01 2019

Lee ST et al. showed inhibitors of the Hh signaling pathway, including cyclopamine derivatives, have been targeted as potential treatments for certain cancers and other diseases associated with the Hh signaling pathway. [Read the Full Post]

Disruption of SHH signaling cascade by SBE attenuates lung cancer progression and sensitizes DDP treatment

0 views | Jan 27 2019

Du J et al. suggested SBE as a novel drug candidate for NSCLC which specifically and sensitively targets SHH signaling pathway. [Read the Full Post]

Cross-talk between Notch and Hedgehog regulates hepatic stellate cell fate in mice

537 views | Jul 14 2018

Xie G, et al. found that the Notch and Hedgehog pathways interact to control the fate of key cell types involved in adult liver repair by modulating epithelial-to-mesenchymal-like/mesenchymal-to-epithelial-like transitions. [Read the Full Post]

Gli1-Mediated Regulation of Sox2 Facilitates Self-Renewal of Stem-Like Cells and Confers Resistance to EGFR Inhibitors in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

565 views | May 18 2018

Bora-Singhal N et al. demonstrated a cooperative functioning of the EGFR signaling and Hedgehog pathways in governing the stem-like functions of NSCLC cancer stem cells and presents a novel therapeutic strategy to combat NSCLC harboring EGFR mutations. [Read the Full Post]

Aberrant activation of hedgehog signaling promotes cell proliferation via the transcriptional activation of forkhead Box M1 in colorectal cancer cells

735 views | Mar 13 2018

Wang D et al. indicated the dysregulation of the Hh-Gli1-FoxM1 axis is essential for the proliferation and growth of human CRC cells and offers a potent target for therapeutic intervention in CRC. [Read the Full Post]

Nek2A/SuFu feedback loop regulates Gli-mediated Hedgehog signaling pathway

676 views | Mar 12 2018

Zhou F et al. uncovered one of the mechanisms by which Nek2A acts as a modulator of the Hh signaling pathway in the context of a novel negative-feedback loop, which may offer new insights into Gli-mediated Hh signaling regulation in development and human diseases. [Read the Full Post]
