CRMPs in Sema3A signaling (R-HSA-399956) [Homo sapiens]


CRMPs are a small family of plexinA-interacting cytosolic phosphoproteins identified as mediators of Sema3A signaling and neuronal differentiation. After Sema3A activation Plexin-A bound CRMP's undergo phosphorylation by Cdk5, GSK3beta and Fes kinases. Phosphorylation of CRMPs by these kinases blocks the ability of CRMP to bind to tubulin dimers, subsequently induces depolymerization of F-actin, and ultimately leads to growth cone collapse.
