Motor protein–dependent transport of AMPA receptors into spines during long-term potentiation
The regulated trafficking of neurotransmitter receptors at synapses is critical for synaptic function and plasticity. However, the molecular machinery that controls active transport of receptors intoExpand

A Postsynaptic Signaling Pathway that May Account for the Cognitive Defect Due to IL1RAPL1 Mutation
BACKGROUND Interleukin-1 receptor accessory protein-like 1 (IL1RAPL1) gene mutations are associated with cognitive impairment ranging from nonsyndromic X-linked mental retardation to autism. IL1RAPL1Expand

The X-Linked Intellectual Disability Protein TSPAN7 Regulates Excitatory Synapse Development and AMPAR Trafficking
Summary Mutations in TSPAN7—a member of the tetraspanin protein superfamily—are implicated in some forms of X-linked intellectual disability. Here we show that TSPAN7 overexpression promotes theExpand

AMPAR trafficking in synapse maturation and plasticity
Glutamate ionotropic alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionic acid (AMPA) receptors (AMPARs) mediate most fast excitatory synaptic transmission in the central nervous system. The contentExpand

The intellectual disability protein RAB39B selectively regulates GluA2 trafficking to determine synaptic AMPAR composition
RAB39B is a member of the RAB family of small GTPases that controls intracellular vesicular trafficking in a compartment-specific manner. Mutations in the RAB39B gene cause intellectual disabilityExpand

The female epilepsy protein PCDH19 is a new GABAAR-binding partner that regulates GABAergic transmission as well as migration and morphological maturation of hippocampal neurons
Abstract The PCDH19 gene (Xp22.1) encodes the cell-adhesion protein protocadherin-19 (PCDH19) and is responsible for a neurodevelopmental pathology characterized by female-limited epilepsy, cognitiveExpand

Tetraspanins: Interactions and interplay with integrins.
Tetraspanins are small transmembrane proteins present on the cell surface of almost every eukaryotic cell. Through binding with other transmembrane and intracellular proteins, they regulate diverseExpand

Loss of hnRNP K Impairs Synaptic Plasticity in Hippocampal Neurons
Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein K (hnRNP K) is an RNA-binding protein implicated in RNA metabolism. Here, we investigated the role of hnRNP K in synapse function. We demonstrated that hnRNP KExpand

The GluR2 subunit inhibits proliferation by inactivating Src‐MAPK signalling and induces apoptosis by means of caspase 3/6‐dependent activation in glioma cells
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most invasive and undifferentiated type of brain tumour, and so surgical interventions are ineffective. We found that GluR2 is absent in fast‐growing GBM‐derivedExpand

TSPAN7: A new player in excitatory synapse maturation and function.
Tetraspanins regulate the signaling, trafficking and biosynthetic processing of associated proteins, and may link the extracellular domain of α-chain integrins with intracellular signaling molecules,Expand
