The embryonic sympathetic nervous system consists of predominantly noradrenergic neurons and a very small population of cholinergic neurons. Postnatal development further allows target-dependent switch of a subset of noradrenergic neurons into cholinergic phenotype. How embryonic cholinergic neurons are specified at the prenatal stages remains largely(More)
Establishing the pattern of expression of transmitters and peptides as well as their receptors in different neuronal types is crucial for understanding the circuitry in various regions of the brain. Previous studies have demonstrated that the transmitter and peptide phenotypes in mouse dorsal spinal cord neurons are determined by the transcription factors(More)
In vivo induction of non-neuronal cells into neurons by transcription factors offers potential therapeutic approaches for neural regeneration. Although generation of induced neuronal (iN) cells in vitro and in vivo has been reported, whether iN cells can be fully integrated into existing circuits remains unclear. Here we show that expression of(More)
