Chemical signaling helps regulate sensory map formation in the brain
...region that processes information from the eye.
At the molecular-signaling level, Wnt3 acts through two different classes of growth-cone receptors, ryk
and the Frizzled(s), to pattern topographic connections in the brain. Disrupting either the Wnt or ephrin pathway throws the growing axons off their ...
Gradient guides nerve growth down spinal cord
...g in the opposite direction are driven down the cord, away from the brain, under the guidance of a receptor, known as Ryk, with very different tastes. ryk
sees Wnts as repulsive signals.
"This is remarkable example of the efficiency of nature," said Yimin Zou, Ph.D., assistant professor of neurobiolog...
