Quick Overview

Cyclopamine is a small molecule inhibitor of the sonic hedgehog pathway (Hh) by binding to the heptahelical bundle of Smoothened. It inhibits the growth of medulloblastoma cells. Hedgehog signaling is involved in embryogenesis as well as cancer progression. It is a steroid alkaloid  and originally identified as a teratogenic agent.
