    VEGF/VEGFR2 signaling regulates hippocampal axon branching during development

    Robert Luck et al.
    Hippocampal axon branching, required for the formation of functional neuronal networks, is regulated by VEGF/VEGFR2 signaling during development.

    Regulation of branching dynamics by axon-intrinsic asymmetries in Tyrosine Kinase Receptor signaling

    Marlen Zschätzsch et al.
    Asymmetric localization of the receptor EGFR within branches of axons is required to establish the precise wiring of neuronal networks within the Drosophila brain.

    Efa6 protects axons and regulates their growth and branching by inhibiting microtubule polymerisation at the cortex

    Yue Qu et al.
    The cortical collapse factor Efa6 limits axon growth and branching and maintains axonal microtubule bundle integrity by inhibiting microtubule polymerisation at the cell cortex.

    Stereotyped terminal axon branching of leg motor neurons mediated by IgSF proteins DIP-α and Dpr10

    Lalanti Venkatasubramanian et al.
    Ig domain family members DIP-alpha and Dpr10 are required in a subset of Drosophila leg motor neurons and muscles, respectively, to establish their fine terminal branching pattern and synapses.

    Deletion of a kinesin I motor unmasks a mechanism of homeostatic branching control by neurotrophin-3

    Thomas O Auer et al.
    Disrupting synapse formation between the retina and the brain in zebrafish larvae-by eliminating the molecular motor Kif5A-triggers a compensatory increase in the branching of retinal axons aimed at restoring synapse number.

    Neurotrophins induce fission of mitochondria along embryonic sensory axons

    Lorena Armijo-Weingart et al.
    Induction of the fission of mitochondria-populating sensory axons is shown to be a novel biological action of neurotrophins.

    MAP7 regulates axon morphogenesis by recruiting kinesin-1 to microtubules and modulating organelle transport

    Stephen R Tymanskyj et al.
    An under-studied microtubule-associated protein is found to regulate axon growth and branching by modulating microtubule-based organelle transport through its dual interactions with microtubules and the conventional kinesin motor.

    Glial and neuronal Semaphorin signaling instruct the development of a functional myotopic map for Drosophila walking

    Durafshan Sakeena Syed et al.
    Signaling from glia and nerves regulate the development of axonal and dendritic motor neuron architecture, needed for walking in the fruit fly species Drosophila.

    Computation identifies structural features that govern neuronal firing properties in slowly adapting touch receptors

    Daine R Lesniak et al.
    Computer simulations show that the firing patterns of branched touch receptors can be set in part by the organization of their sensory endings in the skin.

    Axonal mechanisms mediating γ-aminobutyric acid receptor type A (GABA-A) inhibition of striatal dopamine release

    Paul F Kramer et al.
    GABA-A receptors on dopamine neuron axons not only depolarize the membrane but also limit action potential propagation, an effect potentiated by positive allosteric modulators of GABA-A receptors like diazepam (Valium).
