The notch proteins were first identified in drosophila development and have since been identified as regulators of cell fate decisions during development. These are a family of cell surface transmembrane receptors that pass once through the plasma membrane.
This signalling pathway is involved with many different developmental patterning pathways and in the adult is a key regulator in the vascular system.

Notch1 deficiency in postnatal neural progenitor cells in the dentate gyrus leads to emotional and cognitive impairment
- "The latest evidence shows that Notch1 also plays a critical role in synaptic plasticity in mature hippocampal neurons. So far, deeper insights into the function of Notch1 signaling during the different steps of adult neurogenesis are still lacking, and the mechanisms by which Notch1 dysfunction is associated with brain disorders are also poorly understood. In the current study, we found that Notch1 was highly expressed in the adult-born immature neurons in the hippocampal dentate gyrus. Using a genetic approach to selectively ablate Notch1 signaling in late immature precursors in the postnatal hippocampus by cross-breeding doublecortin (DCX)+ neuron-specific proopiomelanocortin (POMC)-α Cre mice with floxed Notch1 mice, we demonstrated a previously unreported pivotal role of Notch1 signaling in survival and function of adult newborn neurons in the dentate gyrus. Moreover, behavioral and functional studies demonstrated that POMC-Notch1-/- mutant mice showed anxiety and depressive-like behavior with impaired synaptic transmission properties in the dentate gyrus. Finally, our mechanistic study showed significantly compromised phosphorylation of cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB) in Notch1 mutants, suggesting that the dysfunction of Notch1 mutants is associated with the disrupted pCREB signaling in postnatally generated immature neurons in the dentate gyrus."

Endoderm differentiates to form the respiratory airway epithelium and glands. This epithelium is continuously replaced through life from a basal cell pool of undifferentiated airway progenitors. A recent study has shown that the progenitor pool is regulated by the Notch3-Jagged signaling pathway. The mechanism appears dependent upon the availability of Jag1 and Jag2 (generating parabasal cells) that later activates Notch1 and Notch2 leading to a secretory-multiciliated cell fate.

(a) A vascular sprout is characterized by a leading ‘tip’ cell followed by ‘stalk’ cells.
(b) Regulation of new sprouting during vascular expansion depends on integration of BMP signaling, NOTCH signaling and VEGF signaling.
(c) In adult vessels, NOTCH is responsible for maintaining endothelial quiescence and junctional integrity.

Mutations in the human homolog of Jagged-1 (JAG1) located on chromosome 20p12 cause Alagille Syndrome. Abnormalities are seen in gastrointestinal (liver cholestasis), cardiac (heart), renal (kidney), skeletal, ocular, and facial systems.
