Telling axons where to go - and grow

... targets LIMK1 for degradation finally closes this circle of regulation, providing the link between actin dynamics, axonal growth and Rnf6. Importantly, the authors are able to show that changes in axon outgrowth induced by changes in levels of Rnf6 can be restored by compensatory changes in LIMK1 expressi...
