    ..This demonstrates that the previously reported synaptic stabilization of AMPARs by NSF involves disruption of GluR2-PICK1 interactions. Furthermore, we are reporting a non-SNARE substrate for NSF disassembly activity. ..

    ..The hyh mutant provides a valuable in vivo model to study vesicle/membrane trafficking and provides insight into the potential roles of alpha-SNAP in embryogenesis and brain development. ..

    ..Our analysis of ?- and ?SNAP deletion mutant neurons shows that the two NSF cofactors support synaptic vesicle priming by determining the availability of free SNARE components, particularly during phases of high synaptic activity. ..

    ..Here, we provide evidence for several deranged synaptosomal proteins in several brain regions at the protein level indicating deficient synaptosomal wiring of the brain in DS and AD. ..

    ..In summary, our results support the evolving view that NSF has numerous targets in addition to conventional SNARE complexes. ..
