Name Semaphorin-3A
Equivalent Terms Collapsin | Collapsin 1 | Collapsin-1 | Collapsing Factor | Sema3A | Semaphorin 3A | Semaphorin D | Sem D
Definition The prototypical and most well-studied member of the semaphorin family. Semaphorin-3A is an axon-repulsive guidance cue for migrating neurons in the developing nervous system. It has so far been found only in vertebrates, and binds to NEUROPILIN-1/plexin complex receptors on growth cones. Like other class 3 semaphorins, it is a secreted protein.
