    ..Surprisingly, RNAi-mediated knockdown of either gene results in similar migration defects. These results indicate the Dcx microtubule-associated protein family is required for proper neuronal migration and axonal wiring. ..

    ..However, a minor change in expression at the protein level was detected. The Dclk2 gene is less well characterized than Dclk1 and we show here that it is expressed both in proliferating cells and ..
