Protocadherins: not just neuron glue, more too!


Stoeckli, Esther T (2014). Protocadherins: not just neuron glue, more too! Developmental Cell, 30(6):643-644.

Abstract

Selective fasciculation, in which axons navigate toward their targets along preexisting "pioneer" axons, requires specific cell-cell contacts to ensure proper target innervation. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Hayashi et al. (2014) show that the adhesion molecule Protocadherin-17 regulates selective fasciculation by promoting growth, rather than adhesion, of amygdala axons.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
