Sy Redding Accepts Fellow Position at UCSF

Sy did his graduate work at Columbia University in the laboratories of Eric Greene and David Reichman. Using a single molecule imaging technique called DNA curtains, Sy investigated the physical mechanisms through which proteins locate, recognize, and extract genomic information. At UCSF, Sy will use DNA curtains to explore how protein-DNA interactions change as DNA is organized into chromatin: how nature balances the individual protein's need to access DNA against the cell's pressure to organize the genome.

Mechanism of Homeostatic Synaptic Depression Revealed

The Davis lab has published their first paper in eLife describing a novel mechanism that controls the strength of synaptic connections in the nervous system. In their new eLife paper, the Davis lab has defined a novel mechanism that achieves a homeostatic decrease in synaptic strength-regulated removal of calcium channels from the presynaptic plasma membrane.
