Previously Unknown Function: Noelin Proteins Central for Learning Ability in Mammalian Brains

A German-American research team headed by Prof. Dr. Bernd Fakler from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Freiburg has demonstrated the major influence of Noelin1-3 proteins on learning and memory formation in the mammalian brain. The results of this detailed study were published on August 16, 2023 in the journal Neuron by the publisher Cell Press. The lead authors are Dr. Sami Boudkkazi and Dr. Jochen Schwenk, both members of the Institute of Physiology in Freiburg, and Dr. Naoki Nakaya from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. The open-access article is titled “A Noelin-Organized Extracellular Network of Proteins Required for Constitutive and Context-Dependent Anchoring of AMPA-Receptors.”
