This ability to be bifunctional is determined by the availability of various receptors on the particular axon or growth cone, which trigger different cellular cascades in the intracellular environment (Hopker, Shewan, Tessier-Lavigne, Poo, & Holt, 1999; Song & Poo, 2001).
They stated that as the growth cone passed near the target, its receptors recognized the target, paused to deposit the cuing mechanism, and then branched to subsequently reach the target.
The growth cone provides the gateway from the extracellular matrix to the intracellular environment of the axon.
