The nodal 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.

Endoderm Development

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[3] 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.
