  1. Jacob J, Storm R, Castro D, Milton C, Pla P, Guillemot F, et al. Insm1 (IA-1) is an essential component of the regulatory network that specifies monoaminergic neuronal phenotypes in the vertebrate hindbrain. Development. 2009;136:2477-85 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, Insm1 regulates the synthesis of distinct monoaminergic neurotransmitters by acting combinatorially with, or independently of, Ascl1 in specific monoaminergic populations. ..

    ..Therefore, quantitative differences in the expression of a single component of a transcriptional code can select distinct cell fates. ..
