    Program in Neuroscience, Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    Curr Opin Cell Biol 14:221-9. 2002
    ..Recent studies demonstrate a critical role for the cytoplasmic tails of guidance receptors in signalling and also reveal the potential for a great deal of crosstalk between the various receptor-signalling pathways...
