Scaling the MAPK signaling threshold during CNS patterning

Dev Cell. 2013 May 13;25(3):221-2. doi: 10.1016/j.devcel.2013.04.014.

Abstract

Morphogenic gradients originating from signaling centers along the CNS developmental axes contribute to CNS patterning. Reporting in this issue of Developmental Cell, Lanctot et al. (2013) show that the Nde1-Lis1 complex interacts with Brap, a mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway negative regulator, to facilitate position-dependent modulation of neural progenitor fate and CNS patterning.
