Abstract

Currently, perhaps the most significant biological problem is to understand the mechanisms of learning and memory, and many of the answers will come from molecular explanations of synaptic plasticity. Two new papers have established a surprising connection: the Anaphase Promoting Complex/Cyclosome (APC/C) has a second function in controlling local protein stability at synapses, and hence in the control of behavior.
