    Zahavi et al review mechanisms of axonal retrograde signalling in neurons, focusing on selected neurotrophic, injury and guidance cues that have site-specific signalling and functional roles. Increasing evidence demonstrates a common concept in various extracellular signalling, in which their signal and cellular outcome are directly regulated by their localization along the length of the polarized neuron. The authors describe and discuss the known molecular events that can regulate the specificity of these signalers along the neuron and point at standing questions and possible translational implications of these spatial aspects.

    The endosomal coat proteins clathrin and the heterotetrameric clathrin adaptors are cofactors for the immunomodulatory activities of the HIV-1 accessory protein Vpu. Here we show that Vpu interacts with clathrin adaptors in a multifaceted manner: the Vpu cytoplasmic domain binds directly to basic patches on the μ subunit, as well as to a hemi-complex formed by the large, specific (α or γ) and σ subunits. Both interactions are regulated by phosphorylation of serines in the Vpu cytoplasmic domain.
