Neuronal activity is critical for dendritic growth. We found that both GSK-3α and GSK-3β are involved in regulating activity-dependent dendritic growth. Neuronal activity inactivates GSK-3α/β via phosphorylation on Ser21/9, leading to the activation of their downstream effector CRMP-2, thus promoting dendritic growth. These findings identify a novel role for GSK-3/CRMP-2 pathway in connecting neuronal activity to dendritic growth.
