Homer Binds a Novel Proline-Rich Motif and Links Group 1 Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors with IP3 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.
Coupling of mGluR/Homer and PSD-95 Complexes by the Shank Family of Postsynaptic Density Proteins
Surface clustering of metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 induced by long Homer proteins
Clusters induced by long Homers appeared on the plasma membrane and intracellularly, suggesting that clusters form prior to plasma membrane insertion and/or persist after internalization.
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.
Molecular characterisation of two structurally distinct groups of human homers, generated by extensive alternative splicing.
It is discovered that extensive alternative splicing generates a family of 17 Homer proteins, which fall into two distinct groups of 12 "long" Homers, which all have a coiled-coil domain at their C termini, and five "short" Homer, which lack such a domain.
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 Homer-1 protein Ania-3 interacts with the plasma membrane calcium pump.


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.
Transcription Factor Regulation In Brain: Focus on Activity and NMDA Dependent Regulation
A set of transcription factors that are regulated by synaptic activity and NMDA receptors and therefore may play a role in neuroplasticity are identified and examined.
Dynactin, a conserved, ubiquitously expressed component of an activator of vesicle motility mediated by cytoplasmic dynein
It is shown that a approximately 20S polypeptide complex (referred to as Activator I) stimulates dynein- mediated vesicle transport and proposes the name dynactin (for dyne in activator), which is required for in vitro vesicles motility.
