Technical Data
Jagged 1 (JAG1, AGS, AHD, AWS, HJ1, JAGL1, Alagille Syndrome Protein, CD339, Headturner, Htu, MGC104644, Serrate-1, Ser-1, Slalom)
Jagged 1 is a 180kD type I transmembrane glycoprotein and member of the Delta-Serrate-Lag-2 (DSL) family of ligands that activate LIN12/Notch proteins. Human Jagged 1 is synthesized as a 1218aa precursor that contains a 33aa signal sequence, a 1034aa extracellular domain (ECD), a 26aa transmembrane segment, and a 125aa cytoplasmic region. The ECD contains a DSL domain (aa185-229), a cysteine-rich region, 15 EGF-like repeats, of which many bind calcium, and nine potential sites for N-linked glycosylation. Mature human Jagged 1 shares 97-96aa identity with mature mouse and rat Jagged 1, respectively. Jagged 1 is widely expressed in adult and fetal tissues. Jagged-Notch signaling specifies cell fate, regulates pattern formation, defines boundaries between different cell types, and modulates cell proliferation and differentiation, especially during hematopoiesis, myogenesis, neurogenesis, and development of vasculature. Mutations in human Jagged 1 are the cause of Alagille syndrome, an autosomal-dominant disorder characterized by intrahepatic cholestasis and abnormalities of heart, eye, vertebrae, as well as characteristic facial appearance.
