a Normally, STIL binds SUFU, releases SUFU’s suppression on GLI1, then GLI1 can be translocated to the nucleus for gene transcription. b When STIL is mutated, Shh down-stream signaling transduction cannot be completed because the SUFU-GLI1 heterodimers cannot enter the nucleus for gene transcription.
