Abstract In Drosophila, Slit acts as a barrier preventing roundabout expressing axons from entering the midline and sorting contralaterally from ipsilaterally projecting axons. Hutson and Chien, Plump et al., and Bagri et al. (all in this issue of Neuron) use Slit knockout mice and zebrafish astray/Robo2 mutants to show that in vertebrates, Robo/Slit function to channel axons into specific pathways and determine where decussation points occur. Ipsilaterally and contralaterally projected axons are equally affected.
