    Development 131:3239-47. 2004
    ..The results suggest that Ednrb plays a significant role during melanocyte differentiation and effects melanocyte development by both cell non-autonomous and cell-autonomous signaling mechanisms...

    Ivana Matera
    Genetic Disease Research Branch, National Human Genome Research Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA
    Hum Mol Genet 17:2118-31. 2008
    ..This study demonstrates the feasibility of sensitized screens to identify disease modifier loci and implicates GLI3 and other HH signaling components as modifiers of human neurocristopathies...
  3. pmc The secreted metalloprotease ADAMTS20 is required for melanoblast survival
    Debra L Silver
    Genetic Disease Research Branch, National Human Genome Research Institute, Bethesda, Maryland, United States of America
    PLoS Genet 4:e1000003. 2008
    ..Our results have implications not only for understanding mechanisms of NC-derived melanoblast development but also provide insights on novel biological functions of secreted metalloproteases...

    Mech Dev 123:124-34. 2006
    ..Given that SOX10 directly activates Ednrb in the enteric nervous system, our results suggest that SOX10 may differentially activate target genes based on the particular cellular context...
