Cytoskeletal control of axon domain assembly and function.

Abstract

Neurons are organized and connected into functional circuits by axons that conduct action potentials. Many vertebrate axons are myelinated and further subdivided into excitable domains that include the axon initial segment (AIS) and nodes of Ranvier. Nodes of Ranvier regenerate and propagate action potentials, while AIS regulate action potential initiation… (More)
