Scales Radi(i)cally Remodel Sensory Axons and Vasculature

Dev Cell. 2018 Aug 6;46(3):253-254. doi: 10.1016/j.devcel.2018.07.016.


Peripheral axons of sensory neurons innervate skin cells to form a functional sensory organ. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Rasmussen et al. (2018) demonstrate that scale formation is essential for the development and regeneration of zebrafish sensory axons and vasculature.
