key concepts about RNA modifications
The Role of m6A in Synapses
– m6A may play in the brain is regulation of synaptic plasticity
– Altered synaptic protein synthesis in response to persistent neuron firing is a key part of synaptic plasticity
CORE CONCEPT: Synaptic plasticity is the ability of the synaptic terminals of neurons to change their molecular components, structure, and transmission efficiency in response to neuronal activity; it is a core element of neuronal circuits and brain function.
