SUMMARY
Persistent changes in synaptic strength are locally
regulated by both protein degradation and synthesis;
however, the coordination of these opposing limbs
is poorly understood. Here, we found that the RISC
protein MOV10 was present at synapses and was
rapidly degraded by the proteasome in an NMDA-
receptor-mediated activity-dependent manner. We
designed a translational trap to capture those mRNAs
