The Notch signaling pathway is an evolutionarily conserved pathway in multicellular organisms, vital for cell-cell communication, important during fundamental developmental and physiological processes, including regulation of cell fate decisions during neuronal, cardiac and endocrine development, stem cell hematopoiesis, thymic T cell development, and both tumor progression and suppression.
Furin is a critical enzyme during the S1 cleavage of pre-Notch proteins within the golgi apparatus, to convert the nascent form into the mature heterodimeric Notch receptor and the non-covalently associated intracellular domain. These are then transported to the cell surface, in preparation for ligand-receptor binding and further S2 and S3 cleavage, resulting in the release and translocation of the intracellular domain to the nucleus.
