This gene is a homolog of the Drosophila delta gene. The delta gene family encodes Notch ligands that are characterized by a DSL domain, EGF repeats, and a transmembrane domain. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Alitalo et al., Helsinki, Finland. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 20 Feb 2015
VEGFR2 is abundant in the tip cells of angiogenic sprouts, where VEGF/VEGFR2 functions upstream of the delta-like ligand 4 (DLL4)/Notch signal transduction pathway.

New
Impact
Butte et al., Stanford, United States. In Immunity, 20 Feb 2015

Notch Signaling Regulates Antigen Sensitivity of Naive CD4(+) T Cells by Tuning Co-stimulation.
New
Impact
Fowlkes et al., Bethesda, United States. In Immunity, 20 Feb 2015
We have found that Delta Like Ligand 4 (DLL4)-induced Notch signaling potentiates phosphatidylinositol 3-OH kinase (PI3K)-dependent signaling downstream of the T cell receptor+CD28, allowing naive CD4(+) T cells to respond to lower doses of antigen.
Dihydroceramide desaturase 1, the gatekeeper of ceramide induced lipotoxicity.
Review
New
Vidal-Puig et al., Córdoba, Spain. In Biochim Biophys Acta, Jan 2015
Here, we describe its function and dysregulation by factors such as oxidative stress, hypoxia and inflammation and provide evidence indicating that dihydroceramides constitute a biologically active molecule from the sphingolipid family with certain differential characteristics with respect to its delta-4 unsaturated counterparts, the ceramides.

Review
New
Partanen et al., Heidelberg, Germany. In Cell Mol Life Sci, Apr 2014
By comparing the molecular regulation of these events across CNS, we broadly identify three regions utilizing distinct molecular toolkits for GABAergic fate determination: telencephalon-anterior diencephalon (DLX2 type), posterior diencephalon-midbrain (GATA2 type) and hindbrain-spinal cord (PTF1A and TAL1 types).
