Protocadherins mediate dendritic self-avoidance in the mammalian nervous system.
Julie L. Lefebvre et al. (2012)
Nature 488, 517-521
Submitted by Seema Grewal:
“This paper shows that that Pcdhs in the mammalian nervous system provide the basis for neuronal recognition during dendritic self-avoidance, similar to the way in which Dscam isoforms control self-avoidence in fly neurons.”
