LY2940680 is a selective inhibitor of Smo receptor and thus inhibits Hh signaling pathway .
Smoothened(Smo) receptor is a member of class F G protein-coupled receptors, which plays an important role in the main transducer of the Hedgehog (Hh) signaling pathway that implicated in a wide range of developmental and adult processes .
LY2940680 is a potent Smo receptor inhibitor that binds mostly to extracelluar loops and has a different functioning site with the reported Smo receptor inhibitor SANT-1 which binds to 7TM . When tested with cell lines containing a mutation in the gene encoding Smoothened that researchers had previously observed in patient with cancer who developed resistance to vismodegib, LY2940680 inhibited cell proliferation .
Many studies have shown that Hh signaling pathway plays a pivotal role in CSCs and Hh inhibition caused many aspects of transformation attributed to CSCs. In patients with basal cell carcinoma and medulloblastoma, LY2940680 showed good efficacy as a monotherapy .
