    A novel L1CAM isoform with angiogenic activity generated by NOVA2-mediated alternative splicing

    Francesca Angiolini et al.
    Endothelial cells express a soluble isoform of the L1CAM cell adhesion molecule that is generated by the splicing factor NOVA2 and induces angiogenesis, with relevant implications for ovarian cancer vascularization.

    Alternative splicing at neuroligin site A regulates glycan interaction and synaptogenic activity

    Shinichiro Oku et al.
    Inclusion of a neuroligin alternatively spliced insert that interacts with a neurexin glycan modification promote development of functional synaptic connections between neurons and may help alleviate consequences of NLGN mutations.

    The splicing regulator PTBP1 controls the activity of the transcription factor Pbx1 during neuronal differentiation

    Anthony J Linares et al.
    The RNA binding protein PTBP1 controls an extensive program of alternative splicing in embryonic stem cells, one function of which is to repress neuronal transcriptional programs.

    TRPC3 is a major contributor to functional heterogeneity of cerebellar Purkinje cells

    Bin Wu et al.
    Purkinje cells feature molecular heterogeneity that introduces differentiation in physiological properties between zebrin-identified cerebellar modules and thereby underlies the differential control on sensorimotor integration.

    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.

    The PCNA unloader Elg1 promotes recombination at collapsed replication forks in fission yeast

    Sanjeeta Tamang et al.
    Unloading the polymerase sliding clamp PCNA from DNA by Elg1 promotes recombination at the RTS1 replication fork barrier by limiting Fbh1 and Srs2 activity.

    Circularization restores signal recognition particle RNA functionality in Thermoproteus

    André Plagens et al.
    Archaea can contain permuted versions of the universal signal recognition particle RNA, which require a moonlighting activity of the tRNA splicing machinery to generate functional circular RNAs.

    Irregular spiking of pyramidal neurons organizes as scale-invariant neuronal avalanches in the awake state

    Timothy Bellay et al.
    Spontaneous, irregular spiking in single cortical pyramidal neurons assembles as neuronal avalanches at the group level identifying a robust scale-invariant organization of resting activity in the awake state.

    Mapping cortical mesoscopic networks of single spiking cortical or sub-cortical neurons

    Dongsheng Xiao et al.
    Mesoscale cortical calcium activity correlating with single cortical and thalamic cell spiking reveal rich dynamics and support a novel approach for investigating in vivo functional networks in the mammalian brain.

    Subthalamic, not striatal, activity correlates with basal ganglia downstream activity in normal and parkinsonian monkeys

    Marc Deffains et al.
    The spiking activity of the subthalamic nucleus, rather than the activity of striatal projection neurons, orchestrates basal ganglia downstream activity and output commands in health and Parkinson’s disease.
