Assay Description
Using small molecule Hh inhibitors such as HhAntag and the natural product Cyclopamine combined with Smo can induce tumor remission in a genetic mouse model of medulloblastoma [1]. Cyclopamine is a Hedgehog (Hh) pathway antagonist. Cyclopamine inhibits cell growth. Cyclopamine (3μM) inhibits Hh pathway activity and the growth of gastrointestinal tumor cell lines is related to PTCHmRNA expression [2]. Cyclopamine is a steroid alkaloid that can inhibit Hh signaling through direct interaction with Smo [3].

Assay Description
Cyclopamine can lead to persistent regression of xenograft tumors. Tumors in animals treated with cyclopamine completely resolved after 12 days [1]. Cyclopamine (1.2 mg) treatment can block the formation of transplanted tumors of human pancreatic cancer in nude mice [2].
