Steering growth cones with a CaMKII/calcineurin switch.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Calcium can regulate and induce both attractive and repulsive turnings by growth cones. In this issue of Neuron, Wen et al. report that differential activations of CaMKII and calcineurin (CaN) act as the read out for distinct patterns of intracellular calcium signals and a switch between attraction and repulsion.
