  • Noncanonical Modulation of the eIF2 Pathway Controls an Increase in Local Translation during Neural Wiring

    Cagnetta et al. published in Molecular Cell Sema3A triggers the phosphorylation of eIF2α in axons through an initial wave of local protein synthesis. eIF2α phosphorylation upregulates global translation, via differential eIF2B activity, and is required for neural wiring.

  • Rapid Cue-Specific Remodeling of the Nascent Axonal Proteome

    Cagnetta et al. published in Neuron a highly sensitive proteomics approach characterizing the nascent proteome of axons on a rapid timescale. Different extrinsic cues trigger distinct signatures of up-/down-regulated nascent protein changes within 5 minutes.
