The Caenorhabditis elegans neuromuscular junction (NMJ) is one of the best studied synapses in any organism. A variety of genetic screens have identified genes required both for the essential steps of neurotransmitter release from motorneurons as well as the signaling pathways that regulate rates of neurotransmitter release. A number of these regulatory genes encode proteins that converge to regulate neurotransmitter release. In other cases genes are known to regulate signaling at the NMJ but… CONTINUE READING
