The molecular basis of neural fold adhesion and fusion is a poorly understood aspect of neurulation. Cell surface glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored proteins have been implicated in neural fold adhesion, with ephrinAs particularly attractive candidates in view of the cranial neural tube defects observed in mice lacking ephrinA5 or the EphA7 receptor. Here, we demonstrate that ephrinsA1, A3 and A4, as well as several EphA receptors, are expressed in the closing mouse spinal neural tube… CONTINUE READING
