    Differential regulation of hair cell actin cytoskeleton mediated by SRF and MRTFB

    Ling-Yun Zhou, Chen-Xi Jin ... Hao Wu
    In hair cells, the development and maintenance of the F-actin-enriched stereocilia and cuticular plates are differentially regulated by transcription factors SRF and MRTFB, and SRF–CNN2 is required for modulating actin dynamics of the stereocilia and cuticular plate.
