Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Dose response confirmation of uHTS antagonist hits from Gli-SUFU in a luminescent reporter assay
Description:  Data Source: Sanford-Burnham Center for Chemical Genomics (SBCCG) Source Affiliation: Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (SBMRI, San Diego, CA) Network: NIH Molecular Libraries Production Centers Network(MLPCN) Grant Number: 1R03MH094195-01 Assay Provider: James Chen, Ph.D.,Stanford University, Stanford California The Hh pathway plays a critical role in the patterning of certain embryonic tissues and contributes to their neoplastic transformation later in life. Hh signaling regulates cerebellar patterning by promoting the proliferation of neuronal precursor cells, and constitutive Hh target gene expression can lead to medulloblastoma, the most common pediatric brain tumor(1). Hh signaling is normally initiated by the binding of Hh ligands to the twelve-pass transmembrane protein Ptch1(2) inducing its exit from the cilium, leading to Smo accumulation and activation within the antenna-like organelle. Activated Smo then shifts the balance between repressor and activator forms
