Evolutionarily conserved developmental pathways


Proneural pathway - Achaete-Scute homologs and interacting proteins

The proneural pathway is involvedin fate determination of neuroblasts in central and peripheral nervoussystems and cell fate determination in other tissues (Malpighiantubules, for example).
