The Fruits of Our Labor
POSITIVE SURFACE CHARGE OF GLUN1 N-TERMINUS MEDIATES THE DIRECT INTERACTION WITH EPHB2 AND NMDAR MOBILITY
In this paper by Washburn, Xia, and Zhou and colleagues, we determine that the domain that mediates the extracellular interaction between GluN1 and EphB2.
A COMPETITION FOR A MOLECULAR INTERACTION BETWEEN NEURONS DRIVES SYNAPTIC DEVELOPMENT
In this paper by Dr Henderson and Le Marchand, we determine how neurons set the number of synapses they receive and define an novel activity independent mechanism.
SYNAPTIC NANOSTRUCTURE ARE MODULAR
In this paper by Dr Martin Hruska and colleagues, we use super-resolution imaging to define a now modular mechanisms of structural plasticity in spine synapses.
FILOPODIA HAVE THE ABILITY TO SELECT THE RIGHT SYNAPTIC TARGETS AND REJECT WRONG ONES
In this paper by Dr Yuting Mao and colleagues, we show that specific EphB kinase activity in filopodia drives the decision to make or reject a synaptic target.
