In order to determine the extent of microglial influx into the nervous system, we have examined their distribution within the human fetal spinal cord in relation to astrocytic and vascular development between 9 and 16 weeks of gestation,(More)
Members of the Slit family are large extracellular glycoproteins that may function as chemorepellents in axon guidance and neuronal cell migration. Their actions are mediated through members of the Robo family that act as their receptors. In vertebrates, Slit causes chemorepulsion of embryonic olfactory tract, spinal motor, hippocampal and retinal ganglion(More)
