Proper synaptic function requires the spatial and temporal compartmentalization of RNA metabolism via transacting RNA-binding proteins (RBPs). Loss of RBP activity leads to abnormal posttranscriptional regulation and results in diverse neurological disorders with underlying deficits in synaptic morphology and transmission. Functional loss of the 68-kDa RBP Src associated in mitosis (Sam68) is associated with the pathogenesis of the neurological disorder fragile X tremor/ataxia syndrome. Sam68… Expand
Proteostasis and RNA Binding Proteins in Synaptic Plasticity and in the Pathogenesis of Neuropsychiatric Disorders
TLDR
Recent scientific findings are summarized, ongoing questions are highlighted, and basic molecular mechanisms to the pathogenesis of common neuropsychiatric disorders are linked. Expand
Unraveling the Pathways to Neuronal Homeostasis and Disease: Mechanistic Insights into the Role of RNA-Binding Proteins and Associated Factors
TLDR
This review discusses the roles of Pumilio, Staufen, IGF2BP, FMRP, Sam68, CPEB, NOVA, ELAVL, SMN, TDP43, FUS, TAF15, and TIA1/TIAR in RNA metabolism by analyzing their specific molecular and cellular function, the neurological symptoms associated with their perturbation, and their axodendritic transport/localization.

The Protein Arginine Methyltransferase PRMT8 and Substrate G3BP1 Control Rac1-PAK1 Signaling and Actin Cytoskeleton for Dendritic Spine Maturation.
TLDR
This work finds that the protein arginine methyltransferase PRMT8 is present at neuronal synapses and its expression is upregulated in the hippocampus when dendritic spine maturation occurs, unraveled as a crucial regulatory mechanism for actin cytoskeleton during synapse development. Expand
Single β-Actin mRNA Detection in Neurons Reveals a Mechanism for Regulating Its Translatability
TLDR
This work uses single-molecule in situ hybridization to demonstrate that dendritic β-actin messenger RNA (mRNA) and ribosomes are in a masked, neuron-specific form and transient alteration of mRNA availability during synaptic plasticity is revealed. Expand
Sam68 Enables Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor-Dependent LTD in Distal Dendritic Regions of CA1 Hippocampal Neurons
TLDR
It is reported that the RBP Sam68 promotes the localization and translation of Arc mRNA preferentially in distal dendrites of rodent hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons, and a mechanism that enables the precise spatiotemporal expression of long-term plasticity throughout neurons is uncovered. Expand
Regulation of Neuronal Excitability by the RNA-Binding Protein Rbfox1
TLDR
The regulation of interneuron-specific Vamp1 by Rbfox1 provides a paradigm for broadly expressed RNA- binding proteins performing specialized functions in defined neuronal subtypes. Expand
A Sam68‐dependent alternative splicing program shapes postsynaptic protein complexes
TLDR
It is found that Sam68 is required for the regulation of a set of alternative splicing events in pre‐mRNAs encoding several postsynaptic scaffolding molecules that are central to the function of GABAergic and glutamatergic synapses. Expand
RNA‐binding proteins of the NXF (nuclear export factor) family and their connection with the cytoskeleton
TLDR
The evidence demonstrating that Dm NXF1 fulfils not only universal but also specialized cytoplasmic functions is discussed, which allows us to propose that the Dm NexF1 proteins transport certain mRNAs in neurites and interact with localized m RNAs that are necessary for dynamic changes of the cytoskeleton.

TLDR
This is the first study to find the Sam68 expression in SCI and results suggest that Sam68 might be illustrated in the apoptosis of neurons and proliferation of astrocytes after SCI. Expand
Control of a neuronal morphology program by an RNA-binding zinc finger protein, Unkempt.
TLDR
A molecular program that controls the early morphology of neurons through a metazoan-specific zinc finger protein, Unkempt, is described and its precise binding sites within coding regions of mRNAs linked to protein metabolism and trafficking are identified. Expand

Zipcode Binding Protein 1 Regulates the Development of Dendritic Arbors in Hippocampal Neurons
TLDR

TLDR
In cultured hippocampal neurons and in adult brain, the splicing regulatory protein Sam68 is partially relocated to the somatodendritic domain and associates with dendritic polysomes, and the proposal that endogenous Sam68 may contribute to the translational efficiency of the Eef1a1 mRNA is supported.
