|Target/Specificity||ABD13371 specifically recognises Notch 2, one of the four major transmembrane receptors (Notch 1-4) of the Notch signalling pathway, which is activated through binding to DSL domain-containing membrane-bound specific ligands. The Notch signalling 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 haematopoiesis, thymic T-cell development, and both tumour progression and suppression. Ligation of Notch receptors by their specific ligands, Jagged1 (CD339), Jagged2, Delta like-1 (DLL1), DLL3 and DLL4, on physically adjacent signal receiving cells, induces proteolysis of the receptors by ADAM-family metalloproteases and 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 signalling cascades (non-canonical pathway). The canonical pathway inhibits the differentiation of stem cells or progenitor cells, whilst the non-canonical pathway promotes differentiation. Signalling through Notch 2 has been implicated in the development of marginal zone B cells (MZB), the sensitization of endothelial cells to apoptosis, and the regulation of the expression of CD23 in B-cell lymphocytic leukaemia (B-CLL). Studies have also shown a correlation between a decrease in Notch 2 expression and an increase in grade of human breast cancer.|
