This gene encodes a member of the Notch family. Members of this Type 1 transmembrane protein family share structural characteristics including an extracellular domain consisting of multiple epidermal growth factor-like (EGF) repeats and an intracellular domain consisting of multiple different domain types. Notch family members play a role in a variety of developmental processes by controlling cell fate decisions. The Notch signaling network is an evolutionarily conserved intercellular signaling pathway which regulates interactions between physically adjacent cells. In Drosophilia notch interaction with its cell-bound ligands (delta serrate) establishes an intercellular signaling pathway that plays a key role in development. Homologues of the notch-ligands have also been identified in human but precise interactions between these ligands and the human notch homologues remain to be determined. This protein is cleaved in the trans-Golgi network and presented on the cell surface as a heterodimer. This protein functions as a receptor for membrane bound ligands and may play a role in vascular renal and hepatic development. This gene may be associated with susceptibility to schizophrenia in a small portion of cases. An alternative splice variant has been described but its biological nature has not been determined.
