EOMES/TRB2 (also named Eomesodermin/Tbr2) encode T-box transcription factor expressed highly in the intermediate progenitor stage of the developing neuron. During migration of the neurons, radial glia divide and migrate towards the surface of the cerebral cortex, there are three stages of cellular development: radial glia, intermediate progenitors, and postmitotic projection neurons. Radial glia express Pax6, while intermediate progenitor cells express Eomesodermin/Tbr2, and postmitotic projection neurons express Tbr1 (PMID:15634788; PMID:16320258). This process also called neurogenesis, and demonstrated that Eomesodermin/Tbr2 has been implicated in neurodevelopment. According to the mouse model, several articles showed that EOMES/TRB2 KO mice having proliferating cells decreased and having smaller upper cortical layers and a smaller sub ventricular zone in the brain (PMID:18940588). What’s more, Eomesodermin/Tbr2 has also been found participating in immune response (PMID:20713880).
