Csnk1a1 phosphorylates Smo dimer

Stable Identifier
Mus musculus

Numerous residues in the C-terminal tail of Smo are phosphorylated by Csnk1a1 as assessed by an in vitro kinase assay. Of these, residues S592, S594, T597 and S599 in the S0 region appear to play the most important role in Smo activation in response to Shh. Initial phosphorylation by Csnk1a promotes further phosphorylation by both Csnk1a1 and by Ardbk1/Grk2, and phosphorylation is required to promote a conformational change in the C-terminal Smo tail that is required to propagate the Hh signal to downstream effectors (Chen et al, 2011; Chen et al, 2010; Zhao et al, 2007).
