- Coordinated regulation of cholinergic motor neuron traits through a conserved terminal selector genePaschalis Kratsios
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York, USA
Nat Neurosci 15:205-14. 2012..Thus, UNC-3 is a terminal selector for cholinergic motor neuron differentiation whose function is conserved across phylogeny...
- Direct conversion of C. elegans germ cells into specific neuron typesBaris Tursun
Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, NY 10032, USA
Science 331:304-8. 2011..Our findings illustrate the ability of germ cells to be directly converted into individual, terminally differentiated neuron types and demonstrate that a specific chromatin factor provides a barrier for cellular reprogramming...
