Glial-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), secreted by skeletal muscle, triggers expression of the ETS transcription factor Pea3 in a subset of motor neurons in the spinal cord. In this issue, Vrieseling and Arber (2006) find that this retrograde GDNF-Pea3 signal controls dendrite patterning and assembly of a sensory-motor reflex circuit.
