Geoffery Goodhill and Brendan Bicknell write: "Netrin-1 was the textbook example of chemotropic guidance, and one of the very few examples of putative guidance factors ever observed in a gradient in vivo. These new results suggest a shift in thinking about axon guidance more broadly, and may prove to be a major turning point in the field."
