HDAC4 paper featured in the July issue of Genetics!

HDAC4 is essential for memory in Drosophila and mammals. The current issue of Genetics features our paper showing that HDAC4 interacts with  Ubc9, the sole SUMO E2-conjugating enzyme, during memory formation (web). This study should open new avenues for research on how long term memories are established. The study was led by Helen Fitzsimons, a former postdoc in the lab, and follows on previous work on HDAC4 and HDAC1 and long term memory in Drosophila.
