Detects the N-terminal peptide of human (amino acids 24-197) and mouse (amino acids 25-198) Shh in direct ELISAs and Western blots. Shows 50-100% cross-reactivity with the N-terminal peptides of recombinant mouse (rm) Dhh (amino acids 23‑198) and rmIhh (amino acids 66‑240) and no cross-reactivity with the C‑terminal peptides from rmShh (amino acids 199‑437), rmDhh (amino acids 199‑396), or rmIhh (amino acids 241‑449).

Detection of Human and Mouse Sonic Hedgehog/Shh by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human brain tissue and mouse brain tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Rat Anti-Human/Mouse Sonic Hedgehog/Shh N-Terminus Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB464) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for Sonic Hedgehog/Shh at approximately 50 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Sonic Hedgehog/Shh
Shh (Sonic Hedgehog) is expressed in embryonic tissues that are critical for the patterning of the developing central nervous system, somite, and limb. It is also involved in whisker, hair, foregut, tooth, and bone development. Shh regulates neural and hematopoietic stem cell fate and is important for thymocyte differentiation and proliferation. In adult tissue Shh is associated with cancer development and tissue remodeling following injury. Palmitoylation and cholesterol addition of Shh contribute to its membrane tethering and assembly into multimers. Lipid modification and multimerization greatly increase Shh signaling potency. Shh can be released from the plasma membrane by the cooperative action of DISP1, SCUBE2, and TACE/ADAM17. Canonical signaling of Shh is mediated by a receptor complex that includes Patched (PTCH1, PTCH2) and Smoothened (SMO).
