Explant Culture of the Embryonic Mouse Spinal Cord and Gene Transfer by ex vivo Electroporation
Developing axons change responsiveness to guidance cues during the journey to synapse with target cells. Axon crossing at the ventral midline serves as a model for studying how axons accomplish such a switch in their response. Although primary ...
