Neurogenesis or Neuronal Specification: Phosphorylation Strikes Again!

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

4 Scopus citations


How basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors control neurogenesis and neuronal subtype specification through transcriptional mechanisms mediated by cell signaling remains to be fully elucidated. In this issue of Neuron, Ma et al. discover that phosphorylation via GSK3 of the bHLH factor, Ngn2 (Neurog2), adds a neuronal subtype-specific program to its functional repertoire that is activated in the developing neural tube in vivo.
