RNA editing is a powerful way to recode genetic information. Because it potentially affects RNA targets that are predominantly present in neurons, it is widely hypothesized to affect neuronal structure and physiology. Across phyla, loss of the enzyme responsible for RNA editing, Adar, leads to behavioral changes, impaired locomotion, neurodegeneration and(More)
Major signaling molecules initially characterized as key early developmental regulators are also essential for the plasticity of the nervous system. Previously, the Wingless (Wg)/Wnt pathway was shown to underlie the structural and electrophysiological changes during activity-dependent synaptic plasticity at the Drosophila neuromuscular junction.

The role of iron in two modes of integration into alumina catalysts was studied at 0.39 wt% Fe and tested in trichloroethylene combustion. One modified alumina was synthesized using the sol-gel method with Fe added in situ during hydrolysis; another modification was performed using calcined alumina, prepared using the sol-gel method and impregnated with Fe.(More)
