Abstract

Taste sensing neurons of the geniculate ganglion express a unique combination of EphA receptors that are implicated in pathfinding and targeting throughout the nervous system. The Rochlin has been focused on the interaction of these EphA receptors and their EphrinA ligand counterparts which have previously been shown to be expressed in the lingual epithelium surrounding fungiform papillae. In this presentation, I present the results of my last year of work in the Rochlin lab demonstrating results that support our hypothesis that Eph/Ephrin interaction underlies the high fidelity guidance seen in fungiform papillae.

Eph/Ephrin Expression in the Developing Geniculate Ganglion

Taste sensing neurons of the geniculate ganglion express a unique combination of EphA receptors that are implicated in pathfinding and targeting throughout the nervous system. The Rochlin has been focused on the interaction of these EphA receptors and their EphrinA ligand counterparts which have previously been shown to be expressed in the lingual epithelium surrounding fungiform papillae.
