Calcium levels in the presynaptic nerve terminal are altered by several pathways, including voltage-gated Ca(2+) channels, the Na(+)/Ca(2+) exchanger, Ca(2+)-ATPase, and the mitochondria. The influx pathway for homeostatic control of [Ca(2+)](i) in the nerve terminal has been unclear. One approach to detecting the pathway that maintains internal Ca(2+) is(More)
