Modulation of EphA Receptor Function by Coexpressed EphrinA Ligands on Retinal Ganglion Cell Axons
The Eph family is thought to exert its function through the complementary expression of receptors and ligands. Here, we show that EphA receptors colocalize on retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axons withExpand

Nested expression domains for odorant receptors in zebrafish olfactory epithelium.
The mapping of high-dimensional olfactory stimuli onto the two-dimensional surface of the nasal sensory epithelium constitutes the first step in the neuronal encoding of olfactory input. We have usedExpand

Chondroitin sulfate acts in concert with semaphorin 3A to guide tangential migration of cortical interneurons in the ventral telencephalon.
Chondroitin sulfate (CS) carrying proteoglycans (PGs) are widely expressed in the nervous system, and there is increasing evidence that they regulate developmental mechanisms like neurite outgrowth,Expand

Localization of rat glycine receptor alpha1 and alpha2 subunit transcripts in the developing auditory brainstem.
Glycine receptors (GlyRs), aside from GABA(A) receptors, mediate fast postsynaptic inhibition in the mammalian nervous system. Spatial and temporal expression of the genes encoding ligand-bindingExpand

Ephrin‐A5 acts as a repulsive cue for migrating cortical interneurons
Cortical interneurons are born in the germinative zones of the ganglionic eminences in the subpallium, and migrate tangentially in spatially and temporally well‐defined corridors into the neocortex.Expand

Connecting thalamus and cortex: the role of ephrins.
The complex task of wiring up the brain during embryonic development is achieved by a multitude of guidance signals acting in complex combinations to drive growing axons to their proper targets. TheExpand

Balancing of ephrin/Eph forward and reverse signaling as the driving force of adaptive topographic mapping
The retinotectal projection, which topographically maps retinal axons onto the tectum of the midbrain, is an ideal model system with which to investigate the molecular genetics of embryonic brainExpand

Analysis of penetrance and expressivity during ontogenesis supports a stochastic choice of zebrafish odorant receptors from predetermined groups of receptor genes
Olfactory receptor neurons select a single odourant receptor gene for expression out of a large gene family. The mechanisms of this extreme selectivity are largely unknown. We have determined inExpand

Multiple Effects of Ephrin-A5 on Cortical Neurons Are Mediated by Src Family Kinases
The Eph receptor tyrosine kinases and their membrane-bound ligands, the ephrins, are involved in a variety of developmental processes such as axonal guidance, cell migration, cell adhesion,Expand

Layer-specific expression of multiple cadherins in the developing visual cortex (V1) of the ferret.
Cadherins are superfamily of Ca2+-dependent transmembrane glycoproteins with more than 100 members. They play a role in a wide variety of developmental mechanisms, including cell proliferation, cellExpand
