CAMs and the FGF Receptor: An Interacting Role in Axonal Growth

Cell Tissue Res. 1997 Nov;290(2):451-5. doi: 10.1007/s004410050952.

Abstract

We review the effects of three cell adhesion molecules (NCAM, N-cadherin and L1) on axonal growth responses and discuss evidence that they activate fibroblast growth factor receptors in neurons.
