      Secreted hormones

      • Hormone: NRG1-alpha2B

      • Hormone: laminin alpha-4 chain


      • Receptor: integrin alpha-8/beta-1

      • Receptor: PTC1

        • Its receptor Patched-1 (Ptc) is located in the mesenchymal cells. [1]

        Induced phenotype:

        • lung development
          • The interaction between Shh and Ptc is required for lung bud formation. [1]
