Abstract

Proneural basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors such as Neurogenin are activators of neuronal gene expression. Recent studies show they reinforce neuronal differentiation by also inhibiting the expression of glial genes, and are required in vivo to prevent premature and excessive gliogenesis.
