The Neurogenin (Ngn 1-3) family of proneural basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors are key regulators of vertebrate neurogenesis. In the developing vertebrate nervous system, the Ngns are essential for the commitment to a neuronal fate and participate in the specification of neuronal cell-type identity. Xenopus laevis is widely used as a model system to study the early events of vertebrate neurogenesis, however, only Ngnr-1, which is most closely related to the mammalian Ngn2, has… CONTINUE READING
