Description
Description : To make a functioning neuron, you need both a dendrite to receive signals and an axon to send them. Therefore a shared pathway, which stimulates the growth of both, might come in handy. But growing one or the other alone could also be beneficial, and so it would make sense to have dedicated pathways that could stimulate either process independently. Indeed, such shared and dedicated neuronal growth pathways have both been identified. But then there are times when it might be helpful to promote growth of one while inhibiting the other. In a new study in PLOS Biology, Xin Wang, Bing Ye, and colleagues demonstrate the existence of this kind of bimodal control in flies, and identify the molecular pathway that makes it possible.
