|Target/Specificity||Hamster anti Mouse Notch 4 antibody, clone HMN4-14 specifically recognizes mouse Notch 4, one of the four major transmembrane receptors (Notch 1-4) of the Notch signaling pathway, which is activated through binding to DSL domain-containing membrane-bound specific ligands. The Notch signaling pathway is an evolutionarily conserved pathway in multi-cellular organisms, which is vital for cell-cell communication, important during fundamental developmental and physiological processes, including regulation of cell fate decisions during neuronal, cardiac and endocrine development, stem cell hematopoiesis, thymic T-cell development, and both tumor progression and suppression. Ligation of Notch receptors by their specific ligands, Jagged1 (CD339), Jagged2, Delta-like protein 1 (DLL1), DLL3 and DLL4, on physically adjacent signal receiving cells, induces proteolysis of the receptors by ADAM-family metalloproteases and the gamma-secretase complex, within the transmembrane domain, releasing the Notch intracellular domain (NICD) to translocate to the nucleus. Subsequent signal transduction then occurs through either the CSL-NICD-Mastermind complex cascade (canonical pathway), or NF-kappaB-NICD and CSL-NICD-Deltex complex signaling cascades (non-canonical pathway). The canonical pathway inhibits the differentiation of stem cells or progenitor cells, whilst the non-canonical pathway promotes differentiation. Notch 4 is expressed by endothelial cells, macrophages, and CD8+ splenic dendritic cells, and Notch 4 signaling may play a crucial role in vasculogenesis and angiogenesis. In mice, a truncated constitutively active form of Notch 4, designated Int3, also exists, as a result of the mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV).|
