New paper out: FXR2P and translational control

A new paper from the lab sheds light on the role of the Fragile X mental retardation-protein 2 (FXR2P) in translational control. The study was lead by staff scientist Dr Esperanza Fernandez and is published in the Journal of Neuroscience. We showed that FMRP binding to PSD95 requires cooperation with FXR2P, and this coordinated regulation is involved in fine tuning PSD95 activity during synaptic plasticity.
