Congratulations, Karl (and all coauthors) to your second Nature Communications paper!

In the study by Karl and colleagues, DDX6 was used as marker to investigate the regulation of RNA granules under physiological conditions in neurons...

Congratulations, Sandra (and all coauthors) to your recent publication!

In this study published in the Int’l Journal of Mol. Sci., Sandra and colleagues focused on the role of Rgs4 RNA secondary structure on Staufen2 RNP assembly in neurons...

Congratulations, Rico (and all coauthors) to your recent Cell Reports paper!

In this study, Rico and colleagues investigated how the RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) Staufen2 and Pumilio2 modulate different aspects of synaptic responses. Fascinatingly, Pum2 regulates GABAergic transmission...

Congratulations, Rico and Jovica, to your Physiological Review Paper!

In this review, Rico and coauthors discuss the complex interplay between RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) in developing and mature neurons...

Congratulations, Janina (and all coauthors), to your RNA Biology paper!

In this SPP1738 funded project, Janina and coworkers investigated the role of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs), in this case, HuR as functional regulator of non-coding RNAs in neurons...

Congratulations, Paolo and Sabine (and all coauthors) to your paper in the Journal of Cell Science!

Paolo and his PhD student Bouchra discovered a new and unexpected role of a nuclear pore component, termed Nup358..
