Study 1: According to recent research from Canada, multiple signaling pathways regulate fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-2-induced retinal ganglion cell neurite extension and growth cone guidance.
"Growth cones use cues in their environment in order to grow in a directed fashion to their targets. In Xenopus laevis, FGFs participate in retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axon guidance in vivo and in vitro," wrote C.A. Webber and colleagues, University of Calgary.
"The main intracellular signaling cascades known to act downstream of...
