    Flexible linkers in CaMKII control the balance between activating and inhibitory autophosphorylation

    Moitrayee Bhattacharyya et al.
    Differences in the flexible linkers connecting the kinase domain to an oligomeric hub modulate CaMKII activity by changing the balance between activating and inhibitory autophosphorylation.

    A new view of transcriptome complexity and regulation through the lens of local splicing variations

    Jorge Vaquero-Garcia et al.
    New methods reveal that complex local splicing variations are more prevalent in animals than previously appreciated, and demonstrate that local splicing variations are relevant for studies of development, gene regulation and neurodegenerative diseases.

    A model for regulation by SynGAP-α1 of binding of synaptic proteins to PDZ-domain 'Slots' in the postsynaptic density

    Ward G Walkup IV et al.
    The α1 isoform of synGAP restricts the binding of AMPA-receptors and other regulatory proteins to PSD-95, and thus regulates synaptic strength.

    Calcium handling precedes cardiac differentiation to initiate the first heartbeat

    Richard CV Tyser et al.
    High-resolution live imaging reveals how and when the mouse heart first starts to beat during development and how the onset of beating impacts on heart muscle cell maturation and heart formation.

    An alternative splicing switch shapes neurexin repertoires in principal neurons versus interneurons in the mouse hippocampus

    Thi-Minh Nguyen et al.
    Interneuron-specific alternative splice variants of the synaptic receptor neurexin are critical for hippocampal network activity and short-term memory.

    Isoform-specific roles for AKT in affective behavior, spatial memory, and extinction related to psychiatric disorders

    Helen Wong et al.
    Murine behavioral testing and biochemical experiments reveal AKT isoform- and sex-dependent mechanisms regulating affective behavior, memory formation, and extinction.

    Muscle-specific stress fibers give rise to sarcomeres in cardiomyocytes

    Aidan M Fenix et al.
    Sarcomeres in heart muscle cells come from stress fiber-like structures that are mechanistically distinct from stress fibers in non-muscle cells.

    Specific depletion of the motor protein KIF5B leads to deficits in dendritic transport, synaptic plasticity and memory

    Junjun Zhao et al.
    Two homologous kinesin motors, KIF5A and KIF5B, have distinct functions in dendritic spine morphogenesis, and KIF5B plays a role in synaptic plasticity and memory.

    RNG105/caprin1, an RNA granule protein for dendritic mRNA localization, is essential for long-term memory formation

    Kei Nakayama et al.
    The formation of long-term memory in mice requires an element of RNA granules that localizes messenger RNAs to dendrites.

    A kinase-dependent feedforward loop affects CREBB stability and long term memory formation

    Pei-Tseng Lee et al.
    Through an image and behavioral screen based on MiMIC technology, we identified a novel kinase, CG11221 renamed Meng-Po (MP), and showed that flies that lack MP in mushroom bodies can learn but cannot remember as MP is required for the protein stability of CREBB.
