In order to form a functional nervous system, neurones extend axons, often over long distances, to reach their targets. This process is controlled by extracellular receptors and their ligands, several families of which have been identified. These proteins may act to either repel or attract growth cones and a given receptor may transduce either type of signal, depending on the cellular context. In addition to these archetypal axon guidance molecules, it is becoming apparent that molecules… CONTINUE READING
