- Luo J, Ju M, Redies C. Regionalized cadherin-7 expression by radial glia is regulated by Shh and Pax7 during chicken spinal cord development. Neuroscience. 2006;142:1133-43 pubmed..Our data show, for the first time, that Shh can regulate the expression not only of other gene regulatory factors, but also of Cad7, a morphoregulatory molecule that plays a role in axon elongation and neural circuit formation. ..
- Kim D, Kang S, Jin E. Alterations in the temporal expression and function of cadherin-7 inhibit cell migration and condensation during chondrogenesis of chick limb mesenchymal cells in vitro. J Cell Physiol. 2009;221:161-70 pubmed publisher..Collectively, our results suggest that cadherin-7 controls cell migration in chick limb bud mesenchymal cells, and that p38MAPK and GSK signals are responsible for regulating cadherin-7-mediated cell migration. ..
- Bello S, Millo H, Rajebhosale M, Price S. Catenin-dependent cadherin function drives divisional segregation of spinal motor neurons. J Neurosci. 2012;32:490-505 pubmed publisher..Our results show that Î³-catenin-dependent cadherin function is required for spinal motor neuron migration and divisional segregation and suggest a prolonged role for cadherin expression in all phases of motor neuron organization. ..
