Frizzled signaling in neural development and disease



Jeremy Nathans, MD. Ph.D. Investigator at HHMI and Professor of Molecular Biology and Genetics, of Neuroscience and Opthalmology - The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine


Host: Ben Barres 


Frizzled receptors are found in all animals studied to date, and they control an enormous variety of developmental processes, including axon guidance, hair orientation on the body surface, and blood vessel growth and differentiation. This lecture will explore the function and mechanism of this amazing receptor family and the roles that Frizzled signaling play in human disease.
