Crucial first steps: the transcriptional control of neuron delamination
Authors listEmilie Pacary Ben Martynoga Francois Guillemot
A crucial event in the birth of a neuron is the detachment of its apical process from the neuroepithelium. In this issue of Neuron, Rousso et al. (2012) show that repression of N-cadherin by Foxp transcription factors disrupts apical adherens junctions and triggers neurogenesis.
