    J Neurosci 33:5040-52. 2013
    ..Both SAP102 and PAKs are associated with X-linked mental retardation in humans; thus, synapse formation mediated by EphB/SAP102/PAK signaling in the early postnatal brain may be crucial for cognitive development...

    Jian Ping Zhao
    McGovern Institute for Brain Research and Department of Brain and Cognitive Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 110:707-12. 2013
    ..These data indicate that young SC LTP arises from PSD95 unsilencing of silent synapses, that unsilencing is labile in young brain, and that even though SAP102 and PSD95 can bind the same NMDARs, only PSD95 enables SC synaptic maturation...

    ..These results also indicate that palmitoylation can be regulated by a trophic factor. Our findings have implications for neurodevelopmental disorders as well as aging brains...

    ..Together these two reagents enable two-color activation of neural spiking and downstream synaptic transmission in independent neural populations without detectable cross-talk in mouse brain slice. ..
