Contribution of Postsynaptic GluD2 to Presynaptic R-type Ca2+ Channel Function, Glutamate Release and Long-term Potentiation at Parallel Fiber to Purkinje Cell Synapses

Abstract

Glutamate-receptor-like molecule delta2 (GluD2) is selectively expressed on the postsynaptic membranes at parallel fiber to Purkinje cell (PF-PC) synapses in the cerebellum. GluD2 plays critical roles not only in postsynaptic long-term depression but also in the induction of presynaptic differentiation through trans-synaptic interaction with neurexin… (More)
