The cytomatrix protein bassoon contributes to fast transmission at conventional and ribbon synapses

Neuron
Christina Joselevitch, David Zenisek

Abstract

The presynaptic active zone contains a complex web of proteins involved in synaptic transmission. In this issue of Neuron, two articles show evidence that one of these proteins, Bassoon, coordinates multiple functions in a conventional and ribbon-type synapse.
