Delta-like 4

delta4, Dlx2, Dll4
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)

Intracellular NAMPT-NAD+-SIRT1 cascade improves post-ischaemic vascular repair by modulating Notch signalling in endothelial progenitors.
New
Miao et al., Shanghai, China. In Cardiovasc Res, 23 Nov 2014
Overexpression of NAMPT led to a SIRT1-depedent enhancement of Notch-1 intracellular domain deacetylation, which inhibited Delta-like ligand-4 (DLL4)-Notch signalling and thereby up-regulated of VEGFR-2 and VEGFR-3.

Mechanisms regulating GABAergic neuron development.
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).
A core human primary tumor angiogenesis signature identifies the endothelial orphan receptor ELTD1 as a key regulator of angiogenesis.
New
Impact
Buffa et al., Oxford, United Kingdom. In Cancer Cell, Sep 2013
This approach identified ELTD1, an orphan G-protein-coupled receptor whose expression is induced by VEGF/bFGF and repressed by DLL4 signaling.
Robustness in angiogenesis: notch and BMP shaping waves.
Review
New
Zwijsen et al., Leuven, Belgium. In Trends Genet, Mar 2013
In particular, we focus on how Delta-like ligand 4 (DLL4)-Notch and BMP effector interplay may drive nonsynchronized oscillatory gene expression in ECs essential for setting sharp tip-stalk cell boundaries while sustaining a dynamic pool of nonsprouting ECs.

Review
Helewski et al., Katowice, Poland. In Contemp Oncol (pozn), 2012
One of the most prominent factors considered as a promising target in such therapy is the Notch ligand Delta-like 4 (DLL4).

Impact
Adams et al., Münster, Germany. In Nature, 2012
Signalling triggered by VEGF-A (also known as VEGF) has been shown to induce expression of the Notch ligand DLL4 in angiogenic vessels and, most prominently, in the tip of endothelial sprouts.
Synergistic, context-dependent, and hierarchical functions of epithelial components in thymic microenvironments.

Boehm et al., Germany. In Cell, 2012
Thymic epithelium that lacks hematopoietic function but is physiologically accessible for hematopoietic progenitor cells is functionalized by individual and combinatorial expression of four factors, the chemokines Ccl25 and Cxcl12, the cytokine Scf, and the Notch ligand DLL4.
