Many diffusible axon guidance cues and their receptors have been identified recently. These cues are often found to be bifunctional, acting as attractants or repellents under different circumstances. Studies of cytoplasmic signaling mechanisms have led to the notion that the response of a growth cone to a particular guidance cue depends on the internal state of the neuron, which, in turn, is under the influence of other coincident signals received by the neuron. Furthermore, many diffusible… CONTINUE READING
