Members of the myogenic determination family are basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) proteins that can be separated into two classes, both of which work together to activate DNA transcription. Class A proteins include the ubiquitously expressed E-box binding factors, namely E2A, ITF-2 and HEB, while class B proteins, such as MyoD, myogenin and Neuro D (BETA2), are transiently expressed and exhibit a much more limited tissue distribution. Neuro D2 (neurogenic differentiation 2), also known as NDRF, NEUROD2 or bHLHa1, is a 382 amino acid nuclear protein that contains one bHLH domain and functions to induce neurogenic differentiation, playing an important role in the maintenance and determination of cell fate.
