The Scaffold Protein Homer1b/c Links Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 5 to Extracellular Signal-Regulated Protein Kinase Cascades in Neurons
Two coordinated signaling pathways are identified (a conventional IP3/Ca2+ vs a novel Homer pathway) that differentially mediate the mGluR5-ERK coupling in neurons and are corequired to activate ERK1/2 to a level sufficient to achieve the m GluR 5-dependent synapse-to-nucleus communication imperative for the transcriptional regulation.
Homer–PIKE complex: a novel link between mGluRI and PI 3-kinase
Homer as Both a Scaffold and Transduction Molecule
Roles in glutamate receptor function and intracellular signaling in neurons are summarized, with recent data indicating that Homer proteins not only control expression and localization of mGlu receptors and channels, but also participate in signaling of glutamate receptors in neurons.
Homer Proteins Regulate Coupling of Group I Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors to N-Type Calcium and M-Type Potassium Channels
It is indicated that long and short forms of Homer compete for binding to mGluRs and regulate their coupling to ion channels, and in vivo, the immediate early Homer 1a is anticipated to enhance ion channel modulation and to disrupt coupling to releasable intracellular calcium pools.
A new technique to co-localise membrane proteins with Homer/vesl.
Homer Regulates Gain of Ryanodine Receptor Type 1 Channel Complex*
The present work reveals a novel mechanism by which Homer directly modulates the function of its target protein RyR1 and excitation-contraction coupling in skeletal myotubes and is a direct modulator of Ca2+ release gain.
Homer 1b Regulates the Trafficking of Group I Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors*
It is demonstrated that Homer 1b (H1b), a constitutively expressed splice form of the immediate early gene product Homer (now termed Homer 1a) regulates the trafficking and surface expression of group I metabotropic glutamate receptors.
The Complex Formed by Group I Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor (mGluR) and Homer1a Plays a Central Role in Metaplasticity and Homeostatic Synaptic Scaling
The constitutively active Group I mGluR-Homer1a complex is involved in the two main forms of non-Hebbian neuronal plasticity: “metaplasticity” and “homeostatic synaptic scaling,” which are implicated in a large series of physiological and pathologic processes.

Homer: a protein that selectively binds metabotropic glutamate receptors
A novel dendritic protein, Homer, is reported that contains a single, PDZ-like domain and binds specifically to the carboxy terminus of phosphoinositide-linked metabotropic glutamate receptors, suggesting that Homer mediates a novel cellular mechanism that regulates glutamate signalling.
RGS4 Inhibits Signaling by Group I Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors
It is demonstrated that RGS4 can modulate mGluR responses in neurons, and this work highlights a previously unknown mechanism for regulation of G-protein-coupled receptor signaling in the CNS.
Dynamic Regulation of RGS2 Suggests a Novel Mechanism in G-Protein Signaling and Neuronal Plasticity
It is demonstrated that mRNA encoding a member of the regulator of G-protein signaling (RGS) family, RGS2, is rapidly induced in neurons of the hippocampus, cortex, and striatum in response to stimuli that evoke plasticity.
The C‐Terminal Domain of the mGluR1 Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor Affects Sensitivity to Agonists
The hypothesis that the C‐terminal domain of mGLURs plays a role in determining the potency of agonists for inducing mGluR‐mediated functional responses is supported.
Molecular, functional, and pharmacological characterization of the metabotropic glutamate receptor type 5 splice variants: comparison with mGluR1
A splice variant of mGluR5 is characterized which contains a 32 amino acid fragment inserted in the cytoplasmic tail, 50 residues after the 7th transmembrane domain, which indicates that the long C-terminal intracellular domain present only in mGlam glutamate receptors, although not well conserved, is likely to be involved in the specific functional properties of these receptors.
A novel proline‐rich motif present in ActA of Listeria monocytogenes and cytoskeletal proteins is the ligand for the EVH1 domain, a protein module present in the Ena/VASP family
It is demonstrated that ActA–EVH1 binding is a paradigm for a novel class of eukaryotic protein–protein interactions involving a proline‐rich ligand that is clearly different from those described for SH3 and WW/WWP domains.
