    Blocking Apoptotic Signaling Rescues Axon Guidance in Netrin Mutants 

    Newquist, Gunnar; Drennan, J. Michelle; Lamanuzzi, Matthew; Walker, Kirsti; Clemens, James C.; Kidd, Thomas (3/28/2013)
    Summary Netrins are guidance cues that form gradients to guide growing axons. We uncover a mechanism for axon guidance by demonstrating that axons can accurately navigate in the absence of a Netrin gradient if apoptotic ...

    Dscam1 Forms a Complex with Robo1 and the N-Terminal Fragment of Slit to Promote the Growth of Longitudinal Axons 

    Alavi, Maryam; Song, Minmin; King, Gracie L. Andrews; Gillis, Taylor; Propst, Robert; Lamanuzzi, Matthew; Bousum, Adam; Miller, Amanda; Allen, Ryan; Kidd, Thomas (2016)
    The Slit protein is a major midline repellent for central nervous system (CNS) axons. In vivo, Slit is proteolytically cleaved into N- and C-terminal fragments, but the biological significance of this is unknown. Analysis ...
