The large, conserved semaphorin/collapsin gene family encodes putative axon guidance molecules. We describe the cloning and expression of two n ovel zebrafish semaphorins that represent an increase in the size and diversity of the family. These semaphorins are expressed in unique and dynamic patterns during development.
