Noncoding RNA’s Unexpected Journey in Making Memories

When the brain's synapses are activated, they set off a signaling cascade that results in the expression of long noncoding RNA called "ADEPTR." The RNA is quickly transported along dendrites to synapses, where it acts on proteins involved in remodeling. Credit: Jenna Wingfield and Yibo Zhao/ Puthanveettil lab at Scripps Research
