" SCRATCH: what it can tell us about its big cousins SNAIL and SLUG"

*All Welcome*

The Snail superfamily groups Zn-finger transcription factors involved in multiple biological
processes including neural development and cancer. I will present two aspects of
SCRATCH2, a less explored member of this superfamily: its role in neural development and
functional analysis of its domains. These data contribute towards our understanding of the
molecular and functional evolution of the Snail superfamily.
