Abstract

Receptor-like protein tyrosine phosphatases (RPTPs) continue to emerge as important signalling molecules in axons and their growth cones. Recent findings show that Drosophila RPTPs play key roles in guiding retinal axons and in preventing midline crossing of longitudinal axons. Vertebrate RPTPs are now implicated in controlling axon outgrowth, and preliminary evidence suggests that they too may influence axon guidance.
