Summaries for DLL1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DLL1 Gene

  • DLL1 is a human homolog of the Notch Delta ligand and is a member of the delta/serrate/jagged family. It plays a role in mediating cell fate decisions during hematopoiesis. It may play a role in cell-to-cell communication. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DLL1 Gene

DLL1 (Delta-Like 1 (Drosophila)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DLL1 include superficial basal cell carcinoma and visceral leishmaniasis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Disease. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and Notch binding. An important paralog of this gene is NOTCH2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DLL1 Gene

  • Acts as a ligand for Notch receptors. Blocks the differentiation of progenitor cells into the B-cell lineage while promoting the emergence of a population of cells with the characteristics of a T-cell/NK-cell precursor.
