Serie: Methods in Molecular Biology, Vol. 397
In both vertebrates and invertebrates, Hedgehog signaling regulates the development of the tissues and structures of the body. In addition, many cancers and diseases arise as a result of misregulation of the pathway, which makes it an incredibly important system to understand. This volume examines various methods used in the analysis of the Hedgehog signaling pathway, bringing together different lines of analyses into one accessible and comprehensive text. This volume provides a single source for investigators, presenting several different experimental approaches, which are all varied and broad in nature, as well as procedures for a variety of different model systems. Researchers will find this volume to be an invaluble tool as they work towards deeper understanding of the underlying molecular events that the Hedgehog signaling pathway regulates.
