Abstract

The anaphase-promoting complex (APC) has a well-established role in cell cycle control, but recent exciting evidence has uncovered unexpected neurobiological functions for this complex E3 ubiquitin ligase. With its co-activator Cdh1, APC’s effects upon the nervous system range from regulation of axon growth and patterning to development of synapses to neuronal survival. The Cdh1-APC substrates that control these biological processes in neurons are just beginning to be identified. These findings may offer a glimpse of the wide spectrum of neural activities that are orchestrated by Cdh1-APC.
