Your version is way better than mine.

(But at least I was not totally off-shot.)

receptors/ephrins.<

What does CNS-2 mean, 
and what mean orthogonal and cyto(chemical),
and could you elaborate on the Eph receptors?

(My neuro has it limits.)


BTW, have you been working in emryonic research?
And on which species of embryos is this data based?
