DSCAM and DCC (Deleted in Colorectal Carcinoma) form a receptor complex in commissural axons in the absence of netrin1. They associate through a transmembrane interaction. The functional implication of this interaction is not known, but may allow DCC and DSCAM to contribute to other guidance pathways in a netrin1 independent fashion. It may serve as a way to hold DSCAM and DCC in a resting state, until netrin1 reaches a critical concentration at which both receptors are activated.
