    The Drosophila Sp8 transcription factor Buttonhead prevents premature differentiation of intermediate neural progenitors

    Yonggang Xie et al.
    The Drosophila equivalent of the human transcription factor Sp8 acts to ensure that neural progenitor cells undergo an appropriate number of cell divisions, thereby helping to regulate brain development and guard against tumor formation.

    Trithorax maintains the functional heterogeneity of neural stem cells through the transcription factor Buttonhead

    Hideyuki Komori et al.
    The Drosophila equivalent of the human protein Mixed Lineage Leukemia 1n enables neural stem cells to generate neural progenitors through the fly equivalent of the human transcription factor Sp8, thereby contributing to an increased number and diversity of cell types during brain development.

    Anterior CNS expansion driven by brain transcription factors

    Jesús Rodriguez Curt et al.
    The expansion of the anterior Drosophila CNS is driven by increased progenitor generation and prolonged proliferation, mediated by brain-restricted genes and the PRC2.

    Establishment and maintenance of heritable chromatin structure during early Drosophila embryogenesis

    Shelby A Blythe, Eric F Wieschaus
    The patterns of chromatin architecture that underlie the initial embryonic cell fate decisions are established during a period of intense cell cycle activity, and these patterns are stably maintained even in highly condensed mitotic chromatin.

    Concentration dependent chromatin states induced by the bicoid morphogen gradient

    Colleen E Hannon et al.
    Interplay between protein concentration, DNA binding and remodeling of the chromatin landscape in early embryogenesis determines how a single transcription factor can specify multiple distinct gene expression states.
