GAS1 is a vertebrate-specific Hh coreceptor that binds directly to Hh ligand to promote signaling (Martinelli and Fan, 2007; McLellan et al, 2008; Izzi et al, 2011; Pineda-Alvarez et al, 2012). GAS1 interacts directly with PTCH as well as BOC and CDON and contributes in an unclearly defined manner to Hh signal transduction (Martinelli and Fan, 2007; Allen et al, 2007; Izzi et al, 2011; Allen et al, 2011; reviewed in Sanchez-Arrones et al, 2012).
