Cell-contact-dependent signalling in axon growth and guidance: Eph receptor tyrosine kinases and receptor protein tyrosine phosphatase beta.

Abstract

The growth and guidance of axons involves the recognition of complex environmental cues by receptor proteins on the surface of the growth cone and their interpretation by cellular machinery, leading to changes in cellular behaviour. Recent advances have demonstrated that the ligands for Eph receptor tyrosine kinases, the ephrins, act as repulsive axon… (More)
