Control of myelin gene expression

Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the most recent efforts on the transcription front to unravel the means by which glial cells achieve their wraps. It begins with an overview of the coordinate control of myelin genes. It then addresses the following questions: which transcription factors are the players in myelinating cells? How does thyroid hormone impact the oligodendrocyte lineage? What about post-transcriptional controls in myelinating cells?

Keywords: transcription factors; glial cells; myelin genes; thyroid hormones; oligodendrocytes; myelinating cells
