Research Details How Developing Neurons Sense a Chemical Cue (image) Rockefeller University Share Print E-Mail Caption Chemical cues help developing neurons make the right connections by telling them where to extend their branches, or axons. New structural studies of the interactions between one such cue and receptor molecules on the axons reveal how Netrin-1 molecules (blue and green) bind to two neogenin molecules (magenta and orange).
