The mRNA encoding activity-regulated cytoskeleton-associated protein (Arc) is known to be targeted to dendritic regions that have received strong synaptic inputs. However, the cis-acting elements in Arc mRNA that mediate dendritic targeting have not been identified. To identify the dendritic targeting element (DTE) in rat Arc mRNA, we expressed reporter(More)
Hairs in mammals undergo well-programmed cyclic development, which is strictly controlled by the surrounding hair follicle cells. Among hair follicle epithelia the inner root sheath (IRS) directly envelops the hair shaft to mechanically support its cyclic growth, but the molecular mechanism underlying its sharp regulation remains obscure. Here, we identify(More)
