    Toyofuku T, Yoshida J, Sugimoto T, Zhang H, Kumanogoh A, Hori M, et al. FARP2 triggers signals for Sema3A-mediated axonal repulsion. Nat Neurosci. 2005;8:1712-9 pubmed
    ..We therefore conclude that FARP2 is a key molecule involved in the response of neuronal growth cones to class-3 semaphorins. ..

    ..The effects of Sema4A on endothelial cells are dependent on its ability to suppress VEGF-mediated Rac activation and integrin-dependent cell adhesion. It thus appears that Sema4A-Plexin-D1 signaling negatively regulates angiogenesis. ..
