Kouloulia et al. demonstrate that, during early postnatal brain development, deamidation of the translation initiation factor 4E-BP2 renders it susceptible to ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation via enhanced binding to the Raptor-CUL4B complex. mTORC1 or glutamate receptor inhibition stabilizes deamidated 4E-BP2. Moreover, deamidated 4E-BP2 regulates the translation of specific mRNAs and NF-κB activity.
