Memo1 Tiles the Radial Glial Cell Grid

Neuron. 2019 Sep 4;103(5):750-752. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2019.08.021.


What are the mechanisms regulating the orderly buildup of the laminated cerebral cortex during development? In this issue of Neuron, Nakagawa et al. (2019) discovered that Memo1 plays a crucial role by mediating the tiling of the radial glial cell grid.

Keywords: RGC; cerebral cortex; neurodevelopmental disease; neuronal migration; radial glial cell.
