    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 ...

    Differential Contributions of Olfactory Receptor Neurons in a Drosophila Olfactory Circuit 

    Newquist, Gunnar; Novenschi, Alexandra; Kohler, Donovan J.; Mathew, Dennis (2016)
    The ability of an animal to detect, discriminate, and respond to odors depends on the functions of its olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs). The extent to which each ORN, upon activation, contributes to chemotaxis is not well ...
