Notch3 (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. Mutations in NOTCH3 have been identified as the underlying cause of cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL).

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:1000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
