Abstract

Signals generated in distal subcellular compartments of neurons must often travel long distances to the nucleus to trigger changes in gene expression. This retrograde signaling is critical to the development, function, and survival of neural circuits, and neurons have evolved multiple mechanisms to transmit signals over long distances. In this review, we briefly summarize the range of mechanisms whereby distally generated signals are transported to neuronal nuclei. We then focus on the transport of soluble signals from the synapse to the nucleus during neuronal plasticity.
