Role of kinesin binding protein and spontaneous activity in the development of enteric neurons
Grant number: 1047953 | Funding period: 2013 - 2016
The nerve cells in the wall of the gut play an essential role in motility. Defects in the development of these nerve cells results in pediatric motility disorders. We will examine the roles of two factors, kinesin binding protein, and spontaneous activity in the development of enteric neurons.
