Recombinant Human Sonic Hedgehog is a member of a small group of secreted proteins that are essential for development in both vertebrates and invertebrates. Three mammalian hedgehog genes (sonic, desert, Indian) share about 60% homology. The Cys at position 25 has been substituted with Ile. Human SHH is a non-glycosylated polypeptide consisting of 175 amino acids with a molecular weight of 19,697 Da.
