Nerve growth in the absence of growth cone filopodia and the effects of a small applied electric field.

Abstract

Nerve orientation may involve a biasing of the distribution of tension at the growth cone. Chemical and electrical guidance cues cause more filopodia to appear on one side of the growth cone and this may determine turning behaviour. In a small applied electric field, filopodia predominate on the cathodal side of the growth cone and nerves turn towards the… (More)
