The fundamental role of the brain-specific myelin transcription factor 1-like (MYT1L) gene in cases of intellectual disability and in the etiology of neurodevelopmental disorders is increasingly recognized. Yet, its function remains under-investigated. Here, we identify a network of helix-loop-helix (HLH) transcriptional regulators controlled by MYT1L, as indicated by our analyses in human neural stem cells and in the human brain.

The testicular Sertoli cells support spermatogenesis by providing a microenvironment and structural support for the developing germ cells. Sertoli cell functions are regulated by the gonadotropin FSH. Sertoli cells become a terminally differentiated nongrowing cell population in the adult.

The four known ID proteins (ID1-4, Inhibitor of Differentiation) share a homologous helix loop helix (HLH) domain and act as dominant negative regulators of basic-HLH transcription factors. ID proteins also interact with many non-bHLH proteins in complex networks. The expression of ID proteins is increasingly observed in many cancers.

Id helix-loop-helix (HLH) proteins function as regulators of cell growth and differentiation and when overexpressed can induce malignant transformation. In a series of 34 cases of primary human colorectal adenocarcinoma, immunoreactivity for Id1, Id2, and Id3 was found to be significantly elevated in tumor compared with normal mucosa (P = 0.001 for Id1 and Id2; P = 0.

In prostate cancer cells, transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) inhibits proliferation in earlier stages of the disease; however, the cancer cells become refractory to growth inhibitory effects in advanced stages where TGFβ promotes cancer progression and metastasis. Inhibitor of differentiation (Id) family of closely related proteins (Id1-Id4) are dominant negative regulators and basic helix loop helix (bHLH) transcription factors and in general promote proliferation, and inhibit differentiation. In the present study, we have investigated the role of Id1 and Id3 proteins in the growth inhibitory effects of TGFβ on prostate cancer cells.
