Expression of linc RNA D17rik in dorsal CA1 constrain the consolidation of contextual fear memory
Recent studies have implicated lncRNAs as critical regulators of gene expression in the brain, but little is known about whether and how lncRNAs regulate memory. Our studies identified an specific enrichment in dorsal CA1 area of a novel lncRNA, D17rik, induced by contextual fear conditioning training whereas its reduction impairs specifically the encoding of the fear memory, without altering other memory functions.

Localization of brain neuronal IL-1R1 reveals vulnerability of specific neural circuitries to immune signaling
How does inflammatory cytokine interleukin 1 modulate neuronal activities? My study reveals the anatomical localization, neurotransmitter usage, and the
non-canonical modulatory function of neurons which express receptor for interleukin 1.
