The transcriptional corepressor SnoN is a critical regulator of axonal morphogenesis, but how SnoN drives axonal growth is unknown. Here, we report that gene-profiling analyses in cerebellar granule neurons reveal that the large majority of genes altered upon SnoN knockdown are surprisingly downregulated, suggesting that SnoN may activate transcription in neurons. Accordingly, we find that the transcriptional coactivator p300 interacts with SnoN, and p300 plays a critical role in SnoN-induced… CONTINUE READING
