Technical Data
Notch3 (Notch Homolog 3 (Drosophila), hN3, Neurogenic Locus Notch Homolog Protein 3, CADASIL, CASIL) (APC)
Human Notch-3 is part of the Notch family of type I transmembrane glycoproteins involved in a number of early event developmental processes.1 The extracellular domains of Notch receptors interact with the extracellular domains of the transmembrane ligands Jagged, Delta, and Serrate expressed on the surface of a neighboring cell. In both vertebrates and invertebrates, Notch signaling is important for specifying cell fates and for defining boundaries between different cell types. Notch-3 has the same biochemical mechanism of signal transduction as Notch-1, where a series of cleavage events release of the Notch intracellular domain (NICD). NICD translocates to the nucleus and initiates transcription of Notch responsive genes.2 Thus, Notch acts as both a ligand binding receptor and a nuclear factor that regulates transcription. Human Notch-3 shows 90% aa identity to mouse Notch-3 over the entire protein.
