Abstract

In this issue of Cell, Midorikawa et al. (2006) demonstrate that the kinesin superfamily member KIF4, a microtubule-based molecular motor, regulates the survival of electrically active neurons in the developing brain by modulating the function of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 in an unexpected way.
