Going mobile: AMPA receptors move synapse to synapse in vivo.


PMID 24360537

Abstract

Plasticity models invoke the synaptic delivery of AMPARs, yet we know little about how receptors move in vivo. In this issue of Neuron, Hoerndli et al. (2013) show that lateral diffusion and kinesin-mediated transport move AMPARs between synapses in vivo.
