  • A long-term consequence of Notch1 deficiency in adult skin is the development of skin tumors, suggesting that in addition to regulating differentiation processes in the skin, Notch signaling is also associated with tumor suppressive functions Here, we show that simultaneous ablation of Notch1 and Notch2 signaling in the adult skin results in a severe form of atopic dermatitis-like disease as a result of highly elevated levels of TSLP.
