Biological functions of activity-dependent transcription revealed.

Publication ,  Journal Article
West, AE
Published in: Neuron
November 26, 2008

Neuronal activity regulates the transcription of a large set of genes, many of which encode proteins that modify synaptic function. In this issue of Neuron, Hong et al. selectively impair activity-dependent Bdnf transcription and demonstrate that this process is required for inhibitory synapse development.
