RE1-silencing transcription factor

REST, NRSF, neuron-restrictive silencer factor
This gene encodes a transcriptional repressor that represses neuronal genes in non-neuronal tissues. It is a member of the Kruppel-type zinc finger transcription factor family. It represses transcription by binding a DNA sequence element called the neuron-restrictive silencer element. The protein is also found in undifferentiated neuronal progenitor cells and it is thought that this repressor may act as a master negative regular of neurogenesis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010] (from NCBI)

Zhang et al., Chongqing, China. In Mol Neurobiol, 07 Feb 2016

NRSF and BDNF polymorphisms as biomarkers of cognitive dysfunction in adults with newly diagnosed epilepsy.
Sills et al., Liverpool, United Kingdom. In Epilepsy Behav, 17 Jan 2016
We investigated the influence of variants in the genes encoding neuron-restrictive silencer factor (NRSF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), proteins previously associated with cognition and epilepsy, on cognitive function in people with newly diagnosed epilepsy.
Selective repression of gene expression in neuropathic pain by the neuron-restrictive silencing factor/repressor element-1 silencing transcription (NRSF/REST).
Cave et al., White Plains, United States. In Neurosci Lett, 08 Jan 2016
In this review, we discuss recent evidence that the DNA-binding protein neuron-restrictive silencing factor/repressor element-1 silencing transcription factor (NRSF/REST) is an important component in the development and maintenance of neuropathic pain through its role as a transcriptional regulator for a select subset of genes that it normally represses during development.
Give it a REST!
Angeles Marques et al., Edinburgh, United Kingdom. In Elife, 31 Dec 2015
The REST protein helps to prevent the premature activation of genes that are only expressed in mature neurons, and is now found to protect the genome of neural progenitor cells.

REST and stress resistance in ageing and Alzheimer's disease.
Yankner et al., Boston, United States. In Nature, 2014
Here we show that induction of the repressor element 1-silencing transcription factor (REST; also known as neuron-restrictive silencer factor, NRSF) is a universal feature of normal ageing in human cortical and hippocampal neurons.
Direct conversion of fibroblasts to neurons by reprogramming PTB-regulated microRNA circuits.
Fu et al., Wuhan, China. In Cell, 2013
A key event during neuronal induction is the relief of PTB-mediated blockage of microRNA action on multiple components of the REST complex, thereby derepressing a large array of neuronal genes, including miR-124 and multiple neuronal-specific transcription factors, in nonneuronal cells.
