    Molecular basis of synaptic specificity by immunoglobulin superfamily receptors in Drosophila

    Shouqiang Cheng et al.
    Fly protein families Dprs and DIPs can create a multitude of complementary interfaces for homo- and heterophilic adhesion complexes, resulting in instructive roles for connectivity in the motor neuron circuitry.

    Molecular basis of sidekick-mediated cell-cell adhesion and specificity

    Kerry M Goodman et al.
    Crystal structures of synaptic recognition molecules Sidekick-1 and -2 reveal a single homodimer interaction mode responsible for both cell-cell recognition and cis-clustering, suggesting that competition between cis and trans interactions may be critical to specificity.

    NPAS4 recruits CCK basket cell synapses and enhances cannabinoid-sensitive inhibition in the mouse hippocampus

    Andrea L Hartzell et al.
    Behaviorally-driven expression of the immediate early gene transcription factor NPAS4 changes local circuit connectivity and short-term plasticity by selectively recruiting CCK basket cell synapses to pyramidal neuron somas.

    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.

    Transsynaptic interactions between IgSF proteins DIP-α and Dpr10 are required for motor neuron targeting specificity

    James Ashley et al.
    Synaptic partner recognition in the Drosophila neuromuscular circuit requires interactions between the Dpr and DIP subfamilies of immunoglobulin cell-surface proteins.

    The intellectual disability gene Kirrel3 regulates target-specific mossy fiber synapse development in the hippocampus

    E Anne Martin et al.
    Loss of Kirrel3 selectively reduces DG-GABA mossy fiber filopodia and causes CA3 neuron hyper-activity during brain development.

    Regulation of subcellular dendritic synapse specificity by axon guidance cues

    Emily C Sales et al.
    Axon guidance cues restrict sensory neuron synapse formation to a subset of equally acceptable interneuronal dendritic arbors during Drosophila locomotor circuit assembly.
