Active hedgehog signalling in connective tissue cells protects against colon cancer

Many types of cancer are caused by gene mutations in the signalling pathways that control cell growth, such as the hedgehog signalling pathway. A new study now surprisingly shows that in colon cancer hedgehog signalling has a protective function….
