IHH

A gene on chromosome 2q33-q35 that encodes a member of the hedgehog family of secreted signalling molecules, which regulate various developmental processes including growth, patterning and morphogenesis. IHH plays a role in bone growth and differentiation.

Molecular pathology
IHH mutations cause brachydactyly type A1 and acrocapitofemoral dysplasia.
