Detail for Notch4

Full Name

Neurogenic locus notch homolog protein 4

Uniprot ID

Gene Name



Related Disease

  • Breast Cancer [ref.1, 2]

Therapy Method


Functions as a receptor for membrane-bound ligands Jagged1, Jagged2 and Delta1 to regulate cell-fate determination. Upon ligand activation through the released notch intracellular domain (NICD) it forms a transcriptional activator complex with RBPJ/RBPSUH and activates genes of the enhancer of split locus. Affects the implementation of differentiation, proliferation and apoptotic programs. May regulate branching morphogenesis in the developing vascular system By similarity.
