The slit genes have recently been found to encode proteins with a conserved chemorepulsive activity for axons in invertebrates and vertebrates. We have determined the expression pattern of a slit gene in Xenopus embryos. In the neural tube, slit is expressed at the ventral and dorsal midlines, and the motor neurons. slit is also expressed in a changing… CONTINUE READING
