Summary: TDP-43 (Transactive response DNA-binding protein) is a highly conserved nuclear protein that binds both DNA and RNA. It has been found in cytoplasmic protein aggregates of patients with conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease. In this work the authors examine the role of TDP-43 in spinal cord plasticity. Mice received bilateral 3-μg injections of CTB-SAP (Cat. #IT-14) into the lateral and medial gastrocnemius muscles. The results indicate that motor performance is dependent on expression of synapsin-I, which in turn may be dependent on TDP-43.
