    PDF neuron firing phase-shifts key circadian activity neurons in Drosophila

    Fang Guo et al.
    A few circadian ‘evening’ neurons within the Drosophila brain play a key role in driving activity as well as keeping time, whereas the well-known PDF-containing morning cells are likely involved in integrating and transmitting light information.

    PDF-1 neuropeptide signaling regulates sexually dimorphic gene expression in shared sensory neurons of C. elegans

    Zoë A Hilbert, Dennis H Kim
    Sex-specific neuropeptide signaling in the shared sensory nervous system regulates sexually dimorphic gene expression and male-specific behavior in C. elegans.

    The role of PDF neurons in setting the preferred temperature before dawn in Drosophila

    Xin Tang et al.
    In Drosophila, key neurons controlling sleep play an important role in adjusting the temperature set-point before dawn via time-dependent neuronal plasticity within the clock circuits.

    Recognition of familiar food activates feeding via an endocrine serotonin signal in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Bo-mi Song et al.
    The nematode worm C. elegans consumes familiar bacterial species more rapidly than it does novel ones, and this preference for familiarity is mediated by a pair of serotonergic neurons.

    Sensorimotor pathway controlling stopping behavior during chemotaxis in the Drosophila melanogaster larva

    Ibrahim Tastekin et al.
    The reconstruction of a sensorimotor pathway from the olfactory-sensory neurons down to the pre-motor system reveals a descending neuron that plays a critical role in the organization of larval chemotaxis.

    Neural clocks and Neuropeptide F/Y regulate circadian gene expression in a peripheral metabolic tissue

    Renske Erion et al.
    Neuropeptide F/Y from neurons drives rhythmic expression of detoxification-related genes in a peripheral metabolic tissue in flies and mice.

    Replacing the PDZ-interacting C-termini of DSCAM and DSCAML1 with epitope tags causes different phenotypic severity in different cell populations

    Andrew M Garrett et al.
    Mammalian Dscams require different intracellular interactions in different cell types during neural circuit formation to promote self-avoidance.

    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.

    SynGAP isoforms differentially regulate synaptic plasticity and dendritic development

    Yoichi Araki et al.
    Detailed SYNGAP1 splice variant characterization uncovers distinct isoform functions and biochemical properties contributing to critical aspects of neurodevelopment, providing previously unknown isoform-level insight into SYNGAP1-related cognitive disorders.
