Target-Derived Matricryptins Organize Cerebellar Synapse Formation through _3_1 Integrins
Trans-synaptic organizing cues must be passed between synaptic partners for synapses to properly form. Much of our understanding of this process stems from studies at the neuromuscular junction, where target-derived growth ...
Contributions of VLDLR and LRP8 in the establishment of retinogeniculate projections
(BioMed Central, 2013-06-13)
Background: Retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), the output neurons of the retina, project to over 20 distinct brain nuclei, including the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), a thalamic region comprised of three functionally ...
Region- and Cell-Specific Expression of Transmembrane Collagens in Mouse Brain
Unconventional collagens are nonfribrillar proteins that not only contribute to the structure of extracellular matrices but exhibit unique bio-activities. Although roles for unconventional collagens have been well-established ...
LRRTM1 underlies synaptic convergence in visual thalamus
It has long been thought that the mammalian visual system is organized into parallel pathways, with incoming visual signals being parsed in the retina based on feature (e.g. color, contrast and motion) and then transmitted ...
