Differential regulation of axonal growth and neuromuscular junction assembly by HGF/c-Met signaling.

Abstract

BACKGROUND During vertebrate neuromuscular junction (NMJ) development, contact between motor axons and muscle fibers is followed by pre- and post-synaptic specialization. Using Xenopus nerve-muscle cocultures, we recently showed that spinal neurons initially contacted muscle cells by means of filopodial processes, and that muscle-derived basic fibroblast… (More)
