(A) Representative confocal images of NMJ4 boutons in third instar larvae of indicated genotypes labeled for Neto-ex (red), GluRIIC (green) and HRP (blue). mutant NMJs have progressively reduced levels of Neto-ex positive synaptic signals (quantified relative to HRP in B). The levels of synaptic Neto closely match the GluRIIC synaptic signals.

Abstract The molecular mechanisms controlling the subunit composition of glutamate receptors are crucial for the formation of neural circuits and for the Mouse monoclonal antibody to PA28 gamma. The 26S proteasome is a multicatalytic proteinase complex with a highly ordered structurecomposed of 2 complexes, a 20S core and a 19S regulator. The 20S core is composed of 4rings of 28 non-identical subunits; 2 rings are composed of 7 alpha subunits and 2 rings arecomposed of 7 beta subunits. The 19S regulator is composed of a base, which contains 6ATPase subunits and 2 non-ATPase subunits, and a lid, which contains up to 10 non-ATPasesubunits. Proteasomes are distributed throughout eukaryotic cells at a high concentration andcleave peptides in an ATP/ubiquitin-dependent process in a non-lysosomal pathway. Anessential function of a modified proteasome, the immunoproteasome, is the processing of class IMHC peptides. The immunoproteasome contains an alternate regulator, referred to as the 11Sregulator or PA28, that replaces the 19S regulator. Three subunits (alpha, beta and gamma) ofthe 11S regulator have been identified. This gene encodes the gamma subunit of the 11Sregulator. Six gamma subunits combine to form a homohexameric ring. Two transcript variantsencoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] long-term plasticity underlying learning and memory. Here we use the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) to examine how specific receptor subtypes are recruited and stabilized at synaptic locations. In flies, clustering of RTA 402 cell signaling ionotropic glutamate receptors (iGluRs) requires Neto (Neuropillin and Tolloid-like), a highly conserved auxiliary subunit that is essential for NMJ assembly and development. encodes two isoforms, Neto- and Neto-, with common extracellular parts and distinct cytoplasmic domains. Mutations that specifically eliminate Neto- or its intracellular domain were generated. When Neto- is missing or is truncated, the larval NMJs show profound changes in the subtype composition of iGluRs due to reduced synaptic accumulation of the GluRIIA subunit. Furthermore, mutant NMJs fail to accumulate p21-activated kinase (PAK), a critical postsynaptic component implicated in the synaptic stabilization of GluRIIA. Muscle expression of either Neto- or Neto- rescued the synaptic transmission at null NMJs, indicating that Neto conserved domains mediate iGluRs clustering. However, only Neto- restored PAK synaptic accumulation at null NMJs. Thus, Neto engages in intracellular interactions that regulate the iGluR subtype composition by preferentially recruiting and/or stabilizing selective receptor subtypes. Author Summary Ionotropic receptors assembled from different subunits have strikingly different properties and uses. In mammalian brain, the molecular mechanisms controlling the subunit composition of glutamate receptors are critical for the formation of neural circuits and for the RTA 402 cell signaling long-term plasticity underlying learning and memory.
