It is well established that a subset of proteins can be translated in dendrites independently of the cell soma. Recent studies have begun to elucidate the dynamic regulation and functional consequences of this local protein synthesis. In addition to more detailed analyses of mRNA localization, translation, and trafficking in dendrites, new research highlights possible roles of local translation in synaptic plasticity, suggesting a critical role for local translation in neuronal activity.

Keywords:   protein synthesis, dendrites, RNA targeting, mRNA localization, synaptic plasticity, local translation
