    Neurexin and Neuroligin-based adhesion complexes drive axonal arborisation growth independent of synaptic activity

    William D Constance et al.
    Axonal arborisation growth is regulated by dynamic, focal localisations of Neurexin and Neuroligin that provide stability for filopodia, enabling a 'stick and grow'-based mechanism, wholly independent of synapse formation.

    The C9ORF72 GGGGCC expansion forms RNA G-quadruplex inclusions and sequesters hnRNP H to disrupt splicing in ALS brains

    Erin G Conlon et al.
    The C9orf72 expansion binds and sequesters the splicing factor hnRNP H leading to insoluble G-quadruplex aggregates that functionally reduce hnRNP H, thereby producing splicing defects.
