Changes in the proteome after neuronal Zif268 overexpression


Baumgärtel, K; Tweedie-Cullen, R Y; Grossmann, J; Gehrig, P; Livingstone-Zatchej, M; Mansuy, I M (2009). Changes in the proteome after neuronal Zif268 overexpression. Journal of Proteome Research, 8(7):3298-3316.

Abstract

Long-lasting forms of brain plasticity are a cellular basis for long-term memory, and their disturbance underlies pathological conditions such as dementia and cognitive impairment. Neuronal plasticity is a complex process that utilizes molecular cascades in the cytoplasm and the nucleus and involves numerous transcription factors, in particular, immediate early genes (IEGs). The signaling cascades that control IEGs are fairly well described, but the downstream transcriptional response is poorly understood, especially its late components. Here, we investigated the response induced by the IEG Zif268 in the adult brain in relation to long-term memory. Using a mouse model with increased neuronal expression of Zif268 that leads to improved memory, we identified an ensemble of proteins regulated by Zif268 expression and differentiated between direct and indirect targets based on the presence of a consensus binding motif in their promoter. We show that Zif268 regulates numerous substrates with diverse biological functions including protein modification and degradation (proteasome-core complex), phosphorylation, cell division, sensory perception, metabolism, and metal ion transport. The results provide a comprehensive and quantitative data set characterizing the Zif268-dependent proteome in the adult mouse brain and offers biologically important new insight into activity-dependent pathways downstream of IEGs.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
