The nerve terminal proteome governs neurotransmitter release as well as the structural and functional dynamics of the presynaptic compartment. In order to further define specific presynaptic subproteomes we used subcellular fractionation and a monoclonal antibody against the synaptic vesicle protein SV2 for immunoaffinity purification of two major(More)
The presynaptic proteome controls neurotransmitter release and the short and long term structural and functional dynamics of the nerve terminal. Using a monoclonal antibody against synaptic vesicle protein 2 we immunopurified a presynaptic compartment containing the active zone with synaptic vesicles docked to the presynaptic plasma membrane as well as(More)
Previous evidence suggests that guanine nucleotides can directly inhibit N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) and AMPA/kainate receptors and antagonize a variety of cellular functions elicited by these glutamate receptor agonists. We investigated the possibility that the guanine nucleotides GTP, GDP, and GMP exert a neuroprotective effect on cultured rat hippocampal(More)
