In direct ELISAs and Western blots, approximately 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant rat Notch-1 is observed, and less than 1% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse Notch-3 is observed.
Reconstitute at 0.2 mg/mL in sterile PBS.
Endoxin level is <0.10 EU per 1 µg of the antibody by the LAL method.
The LIN-12/Notch family of transmembrane receptors is believed to play a central role in development by regulating cell fate decisions. To date, four Notch homologs have been identified in mammals and have been designated Notch 1, Notch 2, Notch 3 and Notch 4. The Notch genes are expressed in a variety of tissues in both the embryonic and adult organism, suggesting that the genes are involved in multiple signaling pathways. The Notch proteins have been found to be overexpressed or rearranged in human tumors. Ligands for Notch include Jagged, Jagged2 and Delta. Jagged can activate Notch and prevent myoblast differentiation by inhibiting the expression of muscle regulatory and structural genes. Jagged2 is thought to be involved in the development of various tissues whose development is dependent upon epithelial-mesenchymal interactions.
