    Synaptotagmin 7 is targeted to the axonal plasma membrane through γ-secretase processing to promote synaptic vesicle docking in mouse hippocampal neurons

    Jason D Vevea et al.
    Synaptotagmin 7 is asymmetrically localized to the axonal plasma membrane through γ-secretase processing to promote vesicle docking during short-term synaptic plasticity in mouse hippocampal neurons.

    Activity-dependent regulation of mitochondrial motility in developing cortical dendrites

    Catia AP Silva et al.
    Naturally occurring activity in the developing brain regulates mitochondrial motility such that mitochondria stop at active synapses, which is probably a fundamental process in brain wiring.

    Reexamination of N-terminal domains of syntaxin-1 in vesicle fusion from central murine synapses

    Gülçin Vardar et al.
    A mutant rescue approach in STX1-null autaptic neurons provides definitive answers and opens up new questions into a controversial matter of syntaxin-1's binding to Munc18-1 through its N-peptide and its function in neurotransmission.

    The cAMP effector PKA mediates Moody GPCR signaling in Drosophila blood–brain barrier formation and maturation

    Xiaoling Li et al.
    A polarized Moody/protein kinase A pathway plays an unrecognized central role in controlling the enormous cell growth and blood–brain barrier integrity in a highly coordinated spatiotemporal manner in brain homeostasis.

    Regulated delivery controls Drosophila Hedgehog, Wingless, and Decapentaplegic signaling

    Ryo Hatori et al.
    Delivery of Hedgehog, Decapentaplegic and Wingless to target cells in the Drosophila wing imaginal disc is regulated in both amount and destination, and is not dependent on constitutive release or uptake from a common pool.

    Localization, proteomics, and metabolite profiling reveal a putative vesicular transporter for UDP-glucose

    Cheng Qian et al.
    Identification of novel vesicular transporters will shed light on to expanding the chemical diversity of neurotransmitters or neuromodulators.

    Tissue-specific targeting of DNA nanodevices in a multicellular living organism

    Kasturi Chakraborty et al.
    DNA nanodevices can be targeted to specific cell types in Caenorhabditis elegans with subcellular precision by exploiting either endogenous or synthetic receptors.

    An autoinhibitory clamp of actin assembly constrains and directs synaptic endocytosis

    Steven J Del Signore et al.
    Autoinhibition allows synaptic endocytic actin regulators to pre-deploy to synaptic membranes at high concentrations and constrains actin assembly to productive events.

    Distinct synaptic transfer functions in same-type photoreceptors

    Cornelius Schröder et al.
    The ribbon synapses of zebrafish UV-cone photoreceptors preferentially transmit transient or sustained components in light-stimuli depending on their location in the eye.

    The neuronal calcium sensor Synaptotagmin-1 and SNARE proteins cooperate to dilate fusion pores

    Zhenyong Wu et al.
    During neurotransmitter release, calcium-induced membrane insertion of the C2B domain of Synaptotagmin re-orients the bound SNARE complex which dilates the fusion pore in a mechanical lever action.
