Abstract

In the mammalian cerebral cortex, the developmental events governing allocation of different classes of inhibitory interneurons (INs) to distinct cortical layers are poorly understood. Here we report that the guidance receptor PlexinA4 (PLXNA4) is upregulated in serotonin receptor 3a-expressing (HTR3A+) cortical INs (hINs) as they invade the cortical plate, and that it regulates their laminar allocation to superficial cortical layers. We find that the PLXNA4 ligand Semaphorin3A (SEMA3A) acts as a chemorepulsive factor on hINs migrating into the nascent cortex and demonstrate that SEMA3A specifically controls their laminar positioning through PLXNA4. We identify deep-layer INs as a major source of SEMA3A in the developing cortex and demonstrate that targeted genetic deletion of Sema3a in these INs specifically affects laminar allocation of hINs. These data show that, in the neocortex, deep-layer INs control laminar allocation of hINs into superficial layers.
