New paper on regulation of neuronal genes

New paper on regulation of neuronal genes
Description
A new paper from the Soller lab published in Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) shows that neuronally co-expressed ELAV/Hu proteins have distinct functions in vivo in Drosophila, but that they can share targets even with related Sex-lethal depending on concentration and localization.
