The new work, conducted in the Waisman Center laboratory of UW-Madison neuroscientist Su-Chun Zhang, reveals the pervasive influence of Pax6 on the neuroectoderm, a structure that arises early in embryonic development and that churns out the two primary forms of brain cells - neurons and glial cells - and the hundreds of cell subtypes that make up the human brain.
In addition, we have included in our study inhibitor of DNA binding genes ID1, ID2, and ID3 (inhibitors of DNA binding 1,2, and 3, dominant negative helix-loop-helix protein), the expression of which is known to inhibit neuroectoderm differentiation in undifferentiated mouse ESCs (14), although the importance of the ID genes in hESCs has yet to be confirmed.
