Phosphoglucose-Containing Glycoproteins in Intracellular Trafficking and Neuronal Recognition

  • Richard B. Marchase
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 181)


During development of the brain, a neuron’s axonal tip may come Into contact with millions of cells with which it could form synapses. Yet, one of the most striking features of the brain is the exquisite selectivity and reproducibility of the synaptic connections that are actually formed.
