The Bioaim Mouse ShhN ELISA kit is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) for the quantitative measurement of ShhN in mouse serum, plasma and cell culture media. An antibody specific for mouse ShhN was coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells and any ShhN present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-mouse ShhN antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is added to the wells. The wells are again washed and TMB substrate solution is added, which produces a blue color in direct proportion to the amount of ShhN present in the initial sample. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the microwell absorbances are read at 450 nm.Research Area Cell differentitation and development;
sonic hedgehog( ShhN ) Background: Sonic hedgehog is one of three proteins in the mammalian signaling pathway family called hedgehog, the others being desert hedgehog (DHH) and Indian hedgehog (IHH). SHH is the best studied ligand of the hedgehog signaling pathway. It plays a key role in regulating vertebrate organogenesis, such as in the growth of digits on limbs and organization of the brain. Shh 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).
