Shisa6 traps AMPA receptors at postsynaptic sites and prevents their desensitization during synaptic activity - March 2016

How are stabilized AMPA receptors at synapses? Glutamate receptors of AMPA type (AMPAR) are the main players of synaptic transmission in mammalian brain. Their numbers at the synapse largely (...)
