Several proteins have been identified that are asymmetrically localized in dividing Drosophila and vertebrate neural precursors. Some are involved in establishing cell polarity, whereas others are determinants of cell fate. New insights into how cell diversity is generated during neurogenesis have been obtained and the means for rapid progress in this field now exist.
