A Molecular Program for Contralateral Trajectory: Rig-1 Control by LIM Homeodomain Transcription Factors


Despite increasing evidence for transcriptional control of neural connectivity, how transcription factors regulate discrete steps in axon guidance remains obscure. Projection neurons in the dorsal spinal cord relay sensory signals to higher brain centers. Some projection neurons send their axons ipsilaterally, whereas others, commissural neurons, send axons… (More)
