Abstract

Specific mRNAs are transported to dendrites where their translation may modify synaptic plasticity. In this issue of Neuron, Kanai et al. use affinity chromatography and mass spectrometry to identify a large number of new factors that associate with kinesin, a molecular motor, and employ siRNA technology to demonstrate their importance for RNA transport in neurons.
