A fundamental problem in developmental neuroscience is understanding how extracellular cues link to complex intracellular signaling pathways to drive stage-specific developmental decisions. During the formation of the mammalian peripheral nervous system, bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) promote neuronal differentiation. BMPs also maintain the expression(More)
Transforming growth factor beta (TGF beta) family ligands initiate a cascade of events capable of modulating cellular growth and differentiation. The receptors responsible for transducing these cellular signals are referred to as the type I and type II TGF beta receptors. Ligand binding to the type II receptor results in the transphosphorylation and(More)
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) regulate developmental decisions in many neural and nonneural lineages. BMPs influence both CNS neuronal and glial development and promote neuronal differentiation in neural crest derivatives. We investigated the actions of BMP2 on glial differentiation in the peripheral nervous system using NCM1 cells, a neural(More)
Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) coordinates a number of biological events important in normal and pathophysiological growth. In this study, deletion and substitution mutations were used to identify receptor motifs modulating TGF-beta receptor activity. Initial experiments indicated that a COOH-terminal sequence between amino acids 482-491 in the(More)
