HAR1 proves to mark a genetic region that is expressed early in the development of the neocortex; HAR152 is near the gene encoding a protein called neurogenin-2 that is expressed in a region of the hippocampus with a central role in learning and memory; and HAR2 is near a gene with strong expression in the hand, perhaps playing some role in human-specific hand coordination.
Endocrine precursor cell development is controlled by a DNA-binding transcription factor called neurogenin-3 (Ngn3).
Similar activation of endocrine pancreatic progenitor cells, expressing the endocrine marker neurogenin 3 (Ngn3), has been reported in response to duct-ligation
