Tyrosine kinase receptors and their ligands allow communication between cells in the developing and adult organism. An extensive line of research has revealed that 'neuregulins', a family of EGF-like factors that signal via ErbB receptors, are used frequently for cell communication during nervous system development, and control a spectacular spectrum of developmental processes. For instance, during development of the peripheral nervous system, Schwann cells require neuronally-produced… CONTINUE READING
