There are seven members in the Hes family (Fig. 2B), among which Hes1 and Hes4 are more similar to hairy in structure while the other members are more similar to E(spl). , 2004), which form distinct subfamilies (Fig. 2B,C). 2 Structure and Transcriptional Activities of Hes Factors Fig. 1 Change of morphology and competency of neural stem cells during development. Neuroepithelial cells divide symmetrically to increase the cell number. After neural tube formation, neuroepithelial cells become radial glial cells, which have a cell body in the ventricular zone and long processes extending from the internal to the outer surface.

Third, mutant huntingtin disrupts the TFIIF complex formation and thus interferes with transcription initiation, promoter escape, and elongation. This figure also appears on page 425. LIX LX Color Plates Fig. 2 Model for regulation of PGC–1a in Huntington’s disease (HD). Upper panel: In a normal state, PGC–1a regulates metabolic programs and maintains energy homeostasis in the CNS. Lower panel: In HD, mutant huntingtin interferes with CREB and TAF4 regulation of PGC–1a transcription that leads to inhibited expression of PGC–1a.
