JBC Thematic Minireview Series: Molecular Mechanisms of Synaptic Plasticity

October 15, 2015 — High fidelity synaptic communication between subsets of neurons in specific circuits is required for most human behaviors, and is often disrupted in neuropsychiatric disorders. This series of mini-reviews focuses on recent advances in our understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms that control "synaptic plasticity" leading to changes in overall neuronal circuit activity, resulting in behavioral modifications.

JBC Thematic Minireview Series: Protein Interactions, Structures, and Networks

September 10, 2015 —  Protein interactions are fundamental to the proper functioning of cells, and aberrant formation or regulation of protein interactions is at the heart of many diseases, including cancer. The advancement of methods to study the identity, function, and regulation of protein complexes makes possible the understanding of how those complexes malfunction in human diseases. This series of minireviews highlights methodological advances and how they have been applied in novel ways to explore the function and regulation of pathways and dynamic networks in cells.
