Why your hearing needs a REST published in eLife

REST silencing results in hearing loss due to up regulation of Kv7 in the cochlea published in eLife Repressor element 1-silencing transcription factor (REST) is a transcriptional repressor that orchestrates large-scale changes in gene expression patterns. Although originally recognised as a suppressor of neuronal genes in non-neuronal cells, REST is now increasingly recognised for its...
