Dynamics of Cyclic Nucleotide Signaling in Neurons
by Nicholas C Spitzer, Pierre Vincent (eds)
Publisher: Frontiers Media SA 2015
Number of pages: 94
Cyclic nucleotides control a number of neuronal properties including neuronal differentiation, pathfinding, regulation of excitability and synaptic transmission, and control of gene expression. Signaling events mediated by cAMP or cGMP are transient and take place within the complex 3-dimensional structure of the neuronal cell.

The neural crest is an embryonic population of cells found in vertebrates and has the potential to give rise to many different cell types. These derivatives range from the mesenchymal bone, to neuronal derivatives of the peripheral nervous systems.
