anterior/posterior axon guidance Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process in which the migration of an axon growth cone is directed to a specific target site along the anterior-posterior body axis in response to a combination of attractive and repulsive cues. The anterior-posterior axis is defined by a line that runs from the head or mouth of an organism to the tail or opposite end of the organism. (Gene Ontology, GO_0033564)
