    TWIST1 and chromatin regulatory proteins interact to guide neural crest cell differentiation

    Xiaochen Fan et al.
    Network propagation connects TWIST1 with epigenetic regulators CHD7, CHD8, and WHSC1, which collectively promote the bias toward neural crest while suppressing neural stem cell programmes, and subsequently enhance ectomesenchyme potential.

    CHARGE syndrome modeling using patient-iPSCs reveals defective migration of neural crest cells harboring CHD7 mutations

    Hironobu Okuno et al.
    Neural crest cells differentiated from patient-derived cells with mutations in the chromatin remodeler CHD7 show defective delamination, migration and motility in vitro, and defective migration in chick embryos.

    Ret function in muscle stem cells points to tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy for facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy

    Louise A Moyle et al.
    Rescue of DUX4-induced muscle pathology by the RET inhibitor Sunitinib reveals the therapeutic potential for treatment of Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy using tyrosine kinase inhibitors.

    SATB2 induction of a neural crest mesenchyme-like program drives melanoma invasion and drug resistance

    Maurizio Fazio et al.
    A genetic discovery screen for epigenetic factors accelerating melanoma development in vivo identifies SATB2 as a driver of tumor invasion and resistance to FDA-approved BRAF-targeted inhibitor Vemurafenib.
