No ligand Patched membrane protein inhibits Smoothened Transcription Factor Cubitus interruptus (Ci) interacts with Costal and Fused in cytoplasm Ci is phosphorylated which targets it for proteosomal cleavage via Slimb Short Ci translocates into nucleus and binds to Hh target genes Short Ci represses the transcription of target genes Hedgehog signaling: OFF 26
