BETA2/NeuroD1 is a member of the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor family, which has been shown to play a major role in development of the nervous system and formation of the endocrine system. Gain-of-function studies have indicated that BETA2/NeuroD1 is important for the neurogenesis of Xenopus embryos and several neurogenic cell lines. Disruption of the gene encoding BETA2/NeuroD1 leads to severe abnormalities of the developing mouse central nervous system as well as the peripheral nervous system. The focus of this article is on the recent progress in understanding the role of BETA2/NeuroD1 in the development of the nervous system.
