Examples

  • Of the 24 methylated tumors, 21 fell in the "proneural" signature in which the genes expressed are associated with neural development.

    EurekAlert! - Breaking News

  • Our genetic evidence from Drosophila and previous in vitro studies of mammalian Atonal homolog 1 (Atoh1, also called Math1 or Hath1) suggest an anti-oncogenic function for the Atonal group of proneural basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors.

    Intervallic cell

  • It's a proneural gene, which means it activates some part of the embryonic development of the nervous system — in this case, chordotonal organs, cell structures designed to pick up vibrations (think eardrums and the like).

    Intervallic cell

  • Carmena A, Bate M, Jimenez F (1995) Lethal of scute, a proneural gene, participates in the specification of muscle progenitors during Drosophila embryogenesis.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Mash1 is a proneural transcription factor of the basic helix-loop-helix family, which participates in the commitment of neural progenitors, promotion of cell cycle exit and neuronal migration, and in the final specification of neuronal identities in the brain

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • The proneural bHLH transcription factor Mash1 was also more strongly expressed in the auditory nerve (AN) of the E18. 5

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Hath1) suggest an anti-oncogenic function for the Atonal group of proneural basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors.
