FC - Quality tested

Recommended Usage: Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤0.25 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

The Notch receptors are highly conserved from invertebrates to mammals.While Notch1 and Notch 2 exhibit the highest structural similarity among the four mammalian Notch receptors. Notch 3 has a number of structural and functional differences.The binding of Notch 3 to its ligands results in the proteolysis of Notch and movement of intracellular portions of Notch into the nucleus.This translocation triggers a series of signaling process.Notch 3 is primarily expressed in adult arterial smooth muscle cells.Notch 3 gene mutation can cause CADASIL, an inherited early stroke syndrome.

Other Names: Neurogenic locus notch homolog protein 2, Notch-2
Structure: Transmembrane receptor, heterodimer consisting of a C-terminal fragment and N-terminal fragment probably linked by disulphide bonds. Contains 5 ankyrin repeats, 29-36 EGF repeats, 3 Notch/Lin repeats.
Distribution: Highly expressed in the brain, lung, and thymus (CD4-CD8- cells and CD4-CD8+ cells). Lower levels of expression in spleen, bone marrow, spinal cord, eyes, mammary gland, liver, intestine, kidney and heart. In spleen, Notch 2 is reported to be expressed primarily on B cells.
Function: Regulate broad spectrum of various cell lineage commitment process, including myogenesis, neurogenesis, gliogenesis and lymphocyte development. Mutation of Notch2 can cause a rare genetic disorder, Alagille syndrome, with multiple defects in liver, heart and other systems.
Ligand Receptor: Jag1,2; Delta 1,4
