NeuroD2, also referred to as Neurogenic differentiation factor 2 or NDRF, is a highly conserved member of the NeuroD family of basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors. It is highly expressed during development, but it is also present in postmitotic neurons in adulthood, for example in the cerebellum, hippocampus, and cerebral cortex (1).
It is assumed that NeuroD2 acts as a heterodimer with other bHLH transcription factors. It can induce transcription from neuron-specific promoters containing a conserved E-box DNA sequence (1).
NeuroD2 plays a crucial role in the development of the central nervous system (2). It induces neuronal differentiation and promotes neuronal survival (1, 2). Its spectrum of effects includes involvement in the neuronal development in the cerebellum and hippocampus (2, 3), amygdala development and emotional learning (4), and contribution to the terminal neuron localization within the cortical plate (5).
Transgenic mice lacking NeuroD2 do not survive and exhibit severe neurodevelopmental defects (2).
