Abstract

Yamanaka et al. demonstrate that GABA triggers mitochondrial Mg 2+ release in neurons at specifically developmental early stages, and the physiological Mg 2+ redistribution into cytoplasm regulates ERK, CREB, and mTOR activities with target-dependent manners, thereby facilitating neuronal maturation. Mg 2+ is a novel signal transducer.
