SCUBE2 is a member of a family of secreted proteins that is required for long-range signaling Hh signaling (Johnson et al, 2012; Tukachinsky et al, 2012; Creanga et al, 2013). Like DISP2, SCUBE2 binds to the cholesterol moiety of the Hh ligand, although the structural elements recognized by the two proteins are distinct. This suggests a model where Hh is released from the plasma membrane to the extracellular region via a DISP2 to SCUBE hand-off (Tukachinsky et al, 2012; Creanga et al, 2013).
