- Retinoblastoma protein controls growth, survival and neuronal migration in human cerebral organoids
Summary: In human cerebral organoids, depletion of the tumor suppressor retinoblastoma protein disrupts proliferation, promotes entry into S-phase, and causes increased apoptosis and aberrant neuronal migration.
- Patterning of brain precursors in ascidian embryos
Summary: Despite their distinct embryonic origins, anterior and posterior neural precursors within the ascidian larval central nervous system are patterned by similar signaling mechanisms.
- Fat1 interacts with Fat4 to regulate neural tube closure, neural progenitor proliferation and apical constriction during mouse brain development
Highlighted article: Fat1-Fat4 dimer formation is proposed to bring together diverse proteins at apical junctions to regulate both apical constriction and progenitor cell divisions in the neural tube.
