Drosophila Plexin B is a Sema-2a receptor required for axon guidance
TLDR
It is shown that plexB, like plexA, is robustly expressed in the developing CNS and is required for motor and CNS axon pathfinding, and a functional ligand for PlexB is defined, which implicate common signaling events in plexin-mediated axonal guidance.
Semaphorin-1a Functions as a Guidance Receptor in the Drosophila Visual System
TLDR
It is proposed that Sema1a functions as a receptor in regulating R-cell axon guidance in the Drosophila visual system and absolutely requires its cytoplasmic domain.
Plexin A-Semaphorin-1a Reverse Signaling Regulates Photoreceptor Axon Guidance in Drosophila
TLDR
It is shown that like Sema1a, the well known Semaphorin receptor Plexin A (PlexA), is required for the proper guidance of photoreceptor (R cell) axons in the Drosophila visual system and it is proposed that PlexA regulates Semala reverse signaling in theDrosophILA visual system.
Semaphorin-1a acts in concert with the cell adhesion molecules fasciclin II and connectin to regulate axon fasciculation in Drosophila.
TLDR
This work provides further evidence that Sema-1a mediates axonal defasciculation events by acting as an axonally localized repellent and that correct motor axon guidance results from a balance between attractive and repulsive guidance cues expressed on motor neurons.
Molecular basis of semaphorin-mediated axon guidance.
TLDR
Mechanistic aspects of plexin-based signaling for semaphorin guidance cues may have implications for other axon guidance events and for the basis of growth cone motility.
Functions of semaphorins in axon guidance and neuronal regeneration.
TLDR
Sema3A is now recognized as the most potent repulsive molecule inhibiting or repelling neurite outgrowth, and determining how these repulsive molecules exert their actions has the potential of uncovering new therapeutic approaches to injury and/or degeneration of neuronal tissues.
Plexin‐B3 is a functional receptor for semaphorin 5A
TLDR
It is concluded that Sema5A is able to elicit multiple functional responses through its receptor plexin‐B3, and can trigger the intracellular signalling of the hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor receptor, Met, associated in a complex with pLexin‐ B3.

Neuropilin Is a Receptor for the Axonal Chemorepellent Semaphorin III
Transmembrane grasshopper Semaphorin I promotes axon outgrowth in vivo.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that a transmembrane form of Semaphorin (Semaphor in I), which is expressed by bands of epithelial cells in the developing grasshopper limb bud, functions as an attractive/permissive cue for the growth cones of the subgenual organ.
Semaphorins act as attractive and repulsive guidance signals during the development of cortical projections.
TLDR
The coordinated expression of different semaphorins, together with their specific activities on cortical axons, suggests that multiple guidance signals contribute to the formation of precise corticofugal pathways.
Semaphorins A and E act as antagonists of neuropilin-1 and agonists of neuropilin-2 receptors
TLDR
By expressing NP-1 in retinal neurons and NP-2 in DRG neurons, it is demonstrated that neuropilins are sufficient to determine the functional specificity of semaphorin responsiveness.
