    SlitC-PlexinA1 mediates iterative inhibition for orderly passage of spinal commissural axons through the floor plate

    Hugo Ducuing et al.
    A combination of in vivo models and imaging techniques reveals the distribution of guidance cues and their mechanisms of action during commissural axon navigation of intermediate target.

    Microtubules originate asymmetrically at the somatic golgi and are guided via Kinesin2 to maintain polarity within neurons

    Amrita Mukherjee et al.
    The somatic Golgi acts as an asymmetric MTOC within Drosophila neurons, and this, together with the action Kinesin-2, helps maintain minus-end-out microtubule polarity with proximal dendrites.

    Regulation of nerve growth and patterning by cell surface protein disulphide isomerase

    Geoffrey MW Cook et al.
    The nerve growth-repellent activity that generates spinal nerve repeat-patterning in birds and mammals is identified at the molecular level, and a similar system is revealed in adult brain grey matter.

    Chromatin accessibility dynamics and single cell RNA-Seq reveal new regulators of regeneration in neural progenitors

    Anneke Dixie Kakebeen et al.
    Regenerating neural progenitors of the Xenopus tropicalis tail prioritize differentiation to motor neuron types earlier than proliferation, a decision partly regulated by the transcription factors Pbx3 and Meis1.

    CELF RNA binding proteins promote axon regeneration in C. elegans and mammals through alternative splicing of Syntaxins

    Lizhen Chen et al.
    Genetics and genomics approaches reveal a conserved post-transcriptional regulatory mechanism that promotes adult axon regeneration from worm to mammals.

    NOVA regulates Dcc alternative splicing during neuronal migration and axon guidance in the spinal cord

    Janelle C Leggere et al.
    Alternative splicing of the Dcc gene, which is controlled by the NOVA RNA-binding proteins, is crucial during neuronal migration and axon guidance.

    A mathematical model explains saturating axon guidance responses to molecular gradients

    Huyen Nguyen et al.
    Mathematical modelling explains why molecular gradients sometimes cause axons to only turn weakly.

    mTORC1 is necessary but mTORC2 and GSK3β are inhibitory for AKT3-induced axon regeneration in the central nervous system

    Linqing Miao et al.
    The kinase AKT acts as a nodal point that coordinates both positive and negative cues to regulate the regeneration of central nervous system axons in adult mice.

    Cannabinoid-induced actomyosin contractility shapes neuronal morphology and growth

    Alexandre B Roland et al.
    Cannabinoids inhibit neuronal expansion and growth through the rapid contraction of actomyosin.

    GSK3β regulates AKT-induced central nervous system axon regeneration via an eIF2Bε-dependent, mTORC1-independent pathway

    Xinzheng Guo et al.
    The AKT-GSK3β-eIF2Bε signaling module plays a key role in promoting axon regeneration in the adult mammalian central nervous system.
