Notch3, CT, 5935-6454 (Notch homolog 3, Drosophila, hN3, CASIL, CADASIL)
Description:
Notch signaling plays a key role in the normal development of many tissues and cell types, through diverse effects on differentiation, survival, and/or proliferation that are highly dependent on signal strength and cellular context. Members of the Notch gene family encode transmembrane receptors that are critical for various cell fate decisions. Notch family members share structural characteristics including an extracellular domain consisting of multiple epidermal growth factor-like (EGF) repeats, and an intracellular domain consisting of multiple, different domain types. Multiple human notch proteins (Notch1, Notch2, Notch3 and Notch4) have been identified and they function as a receptors for membrane bound ligands. Notch signaling is also linked to tumorigenesis as first demonstrated by the identification of a recurrent t(7;9)(q34;q34.3) chromosomal translocation involving the human Notch1 gene that is found in a small subset of human pre-T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemias (T-ALL). Since this discovery, aberrant Notch signaling has been suggested to be involved in a wide variety of human neoplasms. Notch4 functions as a receptor for membrane bound ligands, and may play a role in vascular, renal and hepatic development. Notch4 may also be associated with susceptibility to schizophrenia in a small portion of cases.
