A transcription factor involved in neuronal differentiation
inding protein 2
or SATB 2
is a transcription factor required for the initiation of the genetic program for the upper-layer neurons (UL1).
Together with Ctip 2
, Coup-TFI, and Fezf 2 it is involved in the fine tuned sequential formation and specification of the different excitatory neuron populations forming the definitive six-layered cortical structure.
