Genes to Cells   20 153-159   Jan 2015
© 2014 by the Molecular Biology Society of Japan and Wiley Publishing Asia Pty Ltd. During developing nervous system, neurons project axons to their targets precisely. In this process, axon guidance molecules provide positional information to the ...

Netrin is an evolutionarily conserved, secretory axon guidance molecule. Netrin's receptors, UNC-5 and UNC-40/DCC, are single trans-membrane proteins with immunoglobulin domains at their extra-cellular regions. Netrin is thought to provide its pos...

The ability to detect harmful chemicals rapidly is essential for the survival of all animals. In Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans), repellents trigger an avoidance response, causing animals to move away from repellents. Dihydrocaffeic acid (DHCA...

Oxygen is essential for animals, but high concentrations of oxygen are toxic to them probably because of an increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS). Many genes are involved in the reactions from which ROS are generated, but not much attention ha...
