Ivan Olave

Ivan, Weidong Wang and Uxtong Wang discovered the first neuron-specific chromatin remodeling complex, which we call nBAF (for neuronal complex of Brg/Brm associated factors). They found that the brain specific complex is defined by BAF53b, an actin-related protein found only in neurons. Ivan went to University of Washington. He can be reached at: iolave@ispwest.com.
