One notable exception is the secreted semaphorin Sema3E, which can bind directly to the PlexD1 receptor independent of Nrp1 or Nrp2 (Gu et al. 2005). Although Sema3E and PlexD1 were originally characterized for their roles in regulating vascular development, they are now known to play critical roles in the development of several neural circuits in the brain. In a recent study, Sema3E expression in the striatum was shown to be required for the convergence of cortical thalamic axons (CTAs) and thalamocortical axons (TCAs); this is achieved by stalling PlexD1-expressing CTAs in the striatum until TCAs arrive to converge and guide the CTAs along their appropriate trajectory (Deck et al.
In cultured hippocampal neurons, siRNA-mediated knockdown of Sema4D reduces GABAergic inhibitory synaptic formation (Paradis et al. 2007). Remarkably, the application of exogenous Sema4D rapidly induces the formation of inhibitory synapses in a matter of hours. This effect is completely abolished in cultured neurons or hippocampal sections prepared from mice lacking the Sema4D receptor PlexB1 (Kuzirian et al. 2013). These studies, taken together, demonstrate that semaphorins are required for the selective establishment of excitatory and inhibitory synapses in the mammalian brain.
In the cerebellum, basket cells located in the molecular layer densely innervate the axon hillock of Purkinje cells located in the Purkinje cell layer (PCL). Basket cells express Nrp1, but Sema3A is expressed specifically in the PCL. A. L. Kolodkin in the PCL, resulting in a reduction in innervation of the Purkinje cell axon hillock (Cioni et al. 2013). In contrast to class three secreted semaphorin promotion of laminar innervation in the cerebellum, transmembrane semaphorins serve to constrain laminar innervation in the hippocampus.
