Co-authored paper published in Stem Cell Reports

A paper on which we¬†collaborated with Elizabeth Paik and her colleagues in Len Zon’s lab at Harvard University has been published in Stem Cell Reports. The paper, entitled “A Cdx4-Sall4 Regulatory Module Controls the Transition from Mesoderm Formation to Embryonic Hematopoiesis“, examined the functions of Cdx4 and Sall4 during the initiation of zebrafish¬†hematopoiesis using ChIP-seq,…

Two papers published in Nature Neuroscience

Two papers which Shaun jointly first-authored with Esteban Mazzoni have been published in the same issue of Nature Neuroscience. In “Synergistic binding of transcription factors to cell-specific enhancers programs motor neuron identity“, we describe the mechanism behind the combinatorial action of transcription factors in motor neuron programming. Specifically, we found that Isl1 cooperates with Phox2a…
