Peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCL) are agressive lymphomas engineered mouse models and spontaneous PTCL models were that develop from mature T cells. The most common PTCLs are used to functionally examine the role of Notch signaling, and genetically, molecularly, and clinically diverse and are generally Notch1/Notch2 blockade and pan-Notch blockade using domiassociated with dismal outcomes. While Notch signaling plays a nant-negative MAML significantly impaired the proliferation of critically important role in both the development of immature T malignant T cells and PTCL progression in these models. Treatment cells and their malignant transformation, its role in PTCL is poorly with DLL1/DLL4 blocking antibodies established that Notch sigunderstood, despite the increasingly appreciated function of Notch naling is ligand-dependent. Together, these findings reveal a role for in regulating the proliferation and differentiation of mature T cells. ligand-dependent Notch signaling in driving peripheral T-cell Here, we demonstrate that Notch receptors and their Delta-like lymphomagenesis. family ligands (DLL1/DLL4) play a pathogenic role in PTCL.
