Transcription factors that control inner ear development and their potential for transdifferentiation and reprogramming

AuthorsSchimmang, Thomas

AbstractTranscription factors (TFs) participate during various processes throughout inner ear development such as induction, morphogenesis and determination of cell fate and differentiation. The analysis of mouse mutants has been essential to define the requirement of different members of TF families during these processes. Next to their roles during normal development TFs have also been tested for their capacity to induce differentiation or reprogram cells upon misexpression. Recently the capacity of TFs to transdifferentiate easily accessible cells such as fibroblasts to highly specialized cell types has opened a new pathway for regenerative therapies. In this review the influence of TFs acting during different phases and processes of inner ear development will be summarized. A special focus will be given to TFs with a potential to reprogram or transdifferentiate cells to sensory cell types of the inner ear such as hair cells or neurons and thus may form part of future protocols directed to generate replacement cells in a clinical context. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
