axon guidance molecules

5 examples (0.02 sec)
  • Netrins are axon guidance molecules that transmit their activity through 2 different receptors.
  • Chemotactic models posit the existence of axon guidance molecules that direct the initial formation of the ocular dominance columns.
  • Generally, chemotaxis models assume activity independent formation via the action of axon guidance molecules, with the structures only later being refined by activity, but there are now known to be activity dependent and activity modifying guidance molecules.
  • Nevertheless, with scar formation, many cell types in the brain release growth-inhibitory ligands such as basal lamina components, inhibitory axon guidance molecules and chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans.
  • Growth cone receptors detect the presence of axon guidance molecules such as Netrin, Slit, Ephrins, and Semaphorins.
