Netrin

netrin

(Science: protein) genes identified in studies of vertebrate neuronal development. Netrins are chemotropic for embryonic commisural neurones: netrin 1 is secreted by the floorplate, whereas netrin 2 is distributed ventrally except for the floorplate. The netrins are homologous to the product of unc 6, a gene identified in studies of neuronal development of the worm, caenorhabditis elegans.

Developmental Biology-I need help

Can someone please try to explain how netrin receptors receive and process guidance signals for both attractive and repulsive responses with reference to netrins as morphogens and molecular components downstream of netrin receptors.
