BC1 RNA is a small non-messenger RNA common in dendritic microdomains of neurons in rodents. In order to investigate its possible role in learning and behaviour, we compared controls and knockout mice from three independent founder lines established from separate embryonic stem cells. Mutant mice were healthy with normal brain morphology and appeared to have no neurological deficits. A series of tests for exploration and spatial memory was carried out in three different laboratories. The tests… 
Regulatory BC1 RNA in cognitive control.
TLDR
Results obtained in these behavioral trials indicate that BC1 KO animals were significantly impaired in their cognitive flexibility, and these observed cognitive deficits are reminiscent of those previously described in subtypes of human autism spectrum disorders.
The non-coding RNA BC1 regulates experience-dependent structural plasticity and learning
TLDR
It is shown that in the cortex, BC1 RNA is required for sensory deprivation-induced structural plasticity of dendritic spines, as well as for correct sensory learning and social behaviors.
Behavioral and Neurochemical Alterations in Mice Lacking the RNA-Binding Protein Translin
TLDR
The results in mice indicate that mutations in translin may contribute to fragile X-like syndromes, mental retardation, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy, and autism spectrum disorders in humans.
Effects of regulatory BC1 RNA deletion on synaptic plasticity, learning, and memory.
TLDR
Findings indicate a role for BC1 RNA control of mGluR-dependent synaptic function in hippocampus and associated cognitive ability in hippocampus knockout mice.
The non-coding RNA BC1 is down-regulated in the hippocampus of Wistar Audiogenic Rat (WAR) strain after audiogenic kindling
TLDR
Functional results recently obtained in a BC1⁻/⁻ mouse model and the current data are supportive of a potential disruption in signaling pathways, upstream of BC1, associated with the seizure susceptibility of WARs.
BC1 RNA motifs required for dendritic transport in vivo
TLDR
Interestingly, changing the triloop supporting structure completely abolished dendritic localization of BC1 RNA in the mutants devoid of the GA motif or the bulged nucleotide.
Noncoding RNAs in Long-Term Memory Formation
TLDR
The role of ncRNAs in regulating the translation, stability, and editing of mRNA populations in response to synaptic activity during memory formation and the role ofnc RNAs in the epigenetic and transcriptional programs that underlie long-term memory storage are described.
Regulatory BC1 RNA and the Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein: Convergent Functionality in Brain
TLDR
The data indicate that BC1 RNA and FMRP operate in sequential-independent fashion, and suggest that the molecular interplay between two translational repressors directly impacts brain functionality.
Two primate-specific small non-protein-coding RNAs in transgenic mice: neuronal expression, subcellular localization and binding partners
TLDR
Observations strongly support the possibility that the independently exapted npcRNAs have similar functions, perhaps in translational regulation of dendritic protein biosynthesis in neurons of the respective primates.
The Brain Cytoplasmic RNA BC1 Regulates Dopamine D2 Receptor-Mediated Transmission in the Striatum
TLDR
The efficiency of D2-mediated transmission regulating striatal GABA synapses is under the control of BC1 RNA, through a negative influence on D2 receptor protein level affecting the functional pool of receptors.

Neuronal Untranslated BC1 RNA: Targeted Gene Elimination in Mice
TLDR
Behavioral analyses indicate that the lack of BC1 RNA appears to reduce exploratory activity, which is consistent with molecular and behavioral consequences of the relatively recent evolutionary origin of the gene.
Dendritic location of neural BC1 RNA.
TLDR
The colocalization of BC1 RNA with dendritic mRNAs and polyribosomes may indicate a role--possibly within the functional unit of a high molecular mass ribonucleoprotein particle--in specific pre- or posttranslational processes in postsynaptic compartments of neurons.
Neuronal BC1 RNA: Co-expression with growth-associated protein-43 messenger RNA
TLDR
The results show that BC1-expressing neurons typically co-express the messenger RNA for growth-associated protein-43 (GAP-43), which identifies a distinct subset of neurons in the rat nervous system that exhibits both types of plasticity.
Neuronal BC1 RNA: intracellular transport and activity-dependent modulation.
TLDR
RNA transport in dendrites, and subsequent local translation in postsynaptic microdomains, have increasingly been recognized as potentially powerful tools for neurons in long-term modulations of individual synapses, and it now appears plausible that such regulation is achieved by two mechanisms: targeted delivery of specific proteins to dendritic sites of demand, and dendrite transport of select RNAs.
Genetically modified mice and cognition
Cognition in transgenic and knockout mice is preferentially assessed by spatial learning in the Morris water maze. Awareness is growing, however, that the putative cognitive deficits observed using
Dendritic BC1 RNA: Functional Role in Regulation of Translation Initiation
TLDR
Dendritic BC1 RNA is identified as a specific repressor of translation in nerve cells and BC1-mediated repression was shown to be effective not only in cap-dependent translation initiation but also in eIF4-dependent internal initiation.

TLDR
The results strongly suggest that BC1 RNA is transcribed specifically from the BC1 gene(s) and is not a highly heterogeneous population of ID-containing RNA polymerase III transcripts.
Dissociation of spatial reference memory, spatial working memory, and hippocampal mossy fiber distribution in two rat strains differing in emotionality
TLDR
Comparisons of inbred strains DA/Han and BDE/Han rats suggest that IIP-MF are involved with flexible expression of memory, updating environmental information and parallel processing whereas SP-MF might be linked to processing of familiar information.
Aggressiveness, hypoalgesia and high blood pressure in mice lacking the adenosine A2a receptor
TLDR
It was found that A2aR-knockout mice were viable and bred normally, and male mice were much more aggressive towards intruders, whereas caffeine, which normally stimulates exploratory behaviour, became a depressant of exploratory activity.

TLDR
The amount of synaptic enhancement was statistically correlated with the ability to perform the circular platform task both within and between groups, and the aftereffects of the high-frequency stimulation selectively impaired the old rats' spontaneous alternation behavior on a T-maze.
