Myosin-Va Facilitates the Accumulation of mRNA/Protein Complex in Dendritic Spines

mRNA localization has an essential role in localizing cytoplasmic determinants, controlling the direction of protein secretion, and allowing the local control of protein synthesis in neurons. In neuronal dendrites, the localization and translocation of mRNA is considered as one of the molecular bases of synaptic plasticity. Recent imaging and functional… CONTINUE READING
