Alexander X. Tai, Robert M. Cassidy and Lawrence F. Kromer EphA7 expression identifies a unique neuronal compartment in the rat striatum Journal of Comparative Neurology 521
The EphA7 receptor is a member of the Eph/ephrin family of molecules, which are known to participate in axonal guidance and cell boundary formation during development. In the postnatal striatum, EphA7 expression delineates a novel striatal compartment. These “matrisome” compartments are located entirely within the striatal matrix and are organized into bands paralleling the curvature of the external capsule. The postnatal expression pattern of EphA7 suggests it plays a role in striatal compartment formation and/or the formation of striatal connections.
