Binding of NOTCH3 receptor to DLL4 ligand has not been directly demonstrated. DLL4 and NOTCH3 are expressed on neighboring cells in retina (Claxton and Fruttiger 2004) and in endothelium/blood (Indraccolo et al. 2009), and DLL4 significantly and specifically increases NOTCH3 signaling (Indraccolo et al. 2009).
