- Over the past decade, converging evidence suggests that PLCγ1 signaling has key roles in controlling neural development steps. PLCγ1 functions as a signal transducer that converts an extracellular stimulus into intracellular signals by generating second messengers such as DAG and IP3. DAG functions as an activator of either PKC or transient receptor potential cation channels (TRPCs), while IP3 induces the calcium release from intracellular calcium stores. These second messengers regulate the morphological change of neuron, such as neurite outgrowth, migration, axon pathfinding, and synapse formation. These morphological changes depend on finely tuned calcium signaling following receptor tyrosine kinase-mediated PLCγ1 signaling. Thus, deregulation of PLCγ1 signaling causes various abnormalities of neuronal development and it may be associated with diverse neurological disorders. Herein, we discuss the current understanding of the PLCγ1 signaling pathway in neural development and provide recent advances of how PLCγ1 signaling is involved in the formation of neuronal processes for functionally faithful brain development. © 2015
