Astrotactin provides a receptor system for CNS neuronal migration.


CNS neuronal migration is a specialized form of cell motility that sets forth the laminar structure of cortical regions of brain. To define the neuronal receptor systems in glial-guided neuronal migration, an in vitro assay was developed for mouse cerebellar granule neurons, which provides simultaneous tracking of hundreds of migrating neurons.
