Slit promotes branching and elongation of neurites of interneurons but not projection neurons from the developing telencephalon.


Proper neuronal migration and establishment of circuitry are key processes for laying down the functional network of cortical neurons. A variety of environmental guidance cues, attractive or repulsive, have been shown to guide cell migration and axon arborization. One of these, Slit, appears to possess contrarian properties; it can either inhibit axon… (More)
