Abstract

Recent advances have indentified some of the key transcriptional regulators of mammalian genes, the neurogenins. Neurogenins 1 and 2 appear to control distinct sublineages for different classes of sensory neurons, including a 'pioneer' lineage for proprioceptors specified early in neural crest migration. Neurogenins act via a cascade of downstream transcriptional regulators, some of which have been identified.
