DLK2 is an EGF-like membrane protein, closely related to DLK1, which is involved in adipogenesis. Both proteins interact with the NOTCH1 receptor and are able to modulate its activation. The expression of the gene Dlk2 is coordinated with that of Dlk1 in several tissues and cell lines. Unlike Dlk1, the mouse Dlk2 gene and its locus at chromosome 17 are not(More)
The epidermal growth factor-like protein DLK2, highly homologous to DLK1, has been identified as a modulator of adipogenesis in vitro. Knocking down Dlk2 expression prevents adipogenesis of 3T3-L1 cells but enhances that of the mesenchymal cell line C3H10T1/2. The expression of Dlk2 shows two peaks along this differentiation process: the first one, in(More)
Delta-like protein 1 (DLK1) is a noncanonical ligand that inhibits NOTCH1 receptor activity and regulates multiple differentiation processes. In macrophages, NOTCH signaling increases TLR-induced expression of key pro-inflammatory mediators. We have investigated the role of DLK1 in macrophage activation and inflammation using Dlk1-deficient mice and Raw(More)
