  • Capturing Neurotransmitter Receptors and Ion Channels

    Neurotransmitter receptors and ion channels in the central nervous system are localized to synaptic and extrasynaptic membrane compartments of pre- and postsynaptic elements of neurons. The impact of the activation of these proteins on synaptic integration and regulation of transmitter release depends on their precise location relative to synapses, as well as on the density and coupling of molecules in microcompartments of the cells. High-resolution qualitative and quantitative visualization of membranebound receptors and ion channels is, therefore, essential for understanding their roles in cell communication.
