A no-Wnt situation: SFRPs as axon guidance molecules

Nature Neuroscience volume 8, pages 12811282 (2005) | Download Citation

Subjects

SFRPs are endogenous inhibitors of Wnt signaling. New work shows that, independently of its interaction with Wnts, SFRP1 can act as a repulsive guidance molecule for retinal axons on their way to the tectum, signaling through the receptor Fz2.
