Numerous studies of the past decade have illuminated the importance of intercellular adhesion events for neural pattern formation. It has been documented that members of the Ig and cadherin gene superfamilies, that glycoproteins and, probably to some extent, proteoglycans of the extracellular matrix play a role in this context. Recent observations suggest that, in addition to adhesive interactions, repulsive and/or inhibitory phenoma are also of importance in regulating neural pattern formation… CONTINUE READING
