DescriptionThis 16F11 monoclonal antibody reacts with the extracellular domain of human and mouse Notch2, one of four members of the Notch family of receptors. Notch receptors are 300kDa single-pass transmembrane proteins. While the extracellular domain contains numerous epidermal growth factor-like repeats for ligand binding, the intracellular domain is involved in cell signaling. Upon binding its membrane-bound ligand (either Delta or Jagged), the Notch receptor undergoes proteolytic cleavage, first by ADAM-family metalloproteases and then by γ-secretase. The second cleavage event releases the Notch intracellular domain (NICD), which subsequently translocates into the nucleus, heterodimerizes with the DNA-binding protein RBP-J, recruits co-activator molecules, and ultimately activates transcription.
Notch2 is expressed on thymocytes (i.e., DN1 and DN2 subsets), activated peripheral T cells, and bone marrow. Moreover, expression of Notch2 has been reported to be altered in various cancers and lymphomas. In addition to its role in stem cell hematopoiesis, Notch2 plays a pivotal role in marginal zone B cell development. Notch2 also interacts with phosphorylated CREB1 to induce granzyme B transcription in cytotoxic T cells.
