"Patched Receptors" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus,
MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). Descriptors are arranged in a hierarchical structure,
which enables searching at various levels of specificity.
A family of 12-pass transmembrane proteins originally identified in Drosophila that are receptors for HEDGEHOG PROTEINS. They have important roles in regulating CELL PROLIFERATION; CELL DIFFERENTIAION; and BODY PATTERNING and may also function as TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEINS.
