One more factor joins the plot: Pbx1 regulates differentiation and survival of midbrain dopaminergic neurons.

Abstract

Midbrain dopaminergic neurons have been the subject of intense research, because of their importance in pathologies such as Parkinson’s disease. In this issue of The EMBO Journal, Villaescusa et al (2016) show the transcription factor Pbx1 is required for the differentiation and survival of midbrain dopaminergic neurons.
