FGF ligands emerge as potential specifiers of synaptic identity.
TLDR
A recent study shows that the decision to form an excitatory vs. inhibitory synapse may to a large extent be determined by the identity of the FGF ligand present at the postsynaptic membrane, establishing FGFs as key target-derived cues that are involved in determining synaptic identity.
Distinct FGFs promote differentiation of excitatory and inhibitory synapses
TLDR
It is shown that two members of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family, FGF22 and FGF7, promote the organization of excitatory and inhibitorypresynaptic terminals, respectively, as target-derived presynaptic organizers.
Distinct sets of FGF receptors sculpt excitatory and inhibitory synaptogenesis
TLDR
Overlapping but distinct sets of FGF receptors mediate FGF22- and FGF7-dependent excitatory and inhibitory presynaptic differentiation in the mammalian hippocampus, in part through FRS2/PI3K signaling.
Signaling at the vertebrate synapse: new roles for embryonic morphogens?
TLDR
During early embryonic patterning, WNT, TGF-beta, and FGF factors function as typical morphogens in a concentration-dependent manner to regulate cell fate decisions, which raises the provocative idea that these same morphogens might also provide a coordinate system for axons to establish the distance to their targets during axon guidance and synapse formation.
Synaptic Functions of the Neural Cell Adhesion Molecule, NCAM
TLDR
In mature brains, NCAM is important for induction of NMDA receptor-dependent long-term potentiation and depression in the CA1 area of the hippocampus, LTP-associated increase in the number of perforated synapses, NMDA receptors-independent mossy fiber LTP, several forms of learning and memory and morphological plasticity in the hypothalamo-neurohypophysial system.

TLDR
The role of the Wnt-Dvl (Dishevelled protein)-GSK-3 beta (glycogen synthase kinase-3beta) signalling pathway in axon remodelling during synapse formation in the central nervous system is discussed.

Induction of presynaptic differentiation in cultured neurons by extracellular matrix components
TLDR
Two systems in which basal lamina‐derived components induce presynaptic differentiation of cultured neurons from chick ciliary ganglia in the absence of a postsynaptic cell are introduced.
AMPA receptors regulate dynamic equilibrium of presynaptic terminals in mature hippocampal networks
TLDR
High-frequency stimulation can make stable presynaptic terminals become dynamic, providing a candidate mechanism to convert experience into changes in network connectivity.
Aberrant differentiation of neuromuscular junctions in mice lacking s-laminin/laminin β2
TLDR
It is shown that s-laminin regulates formation of motor nerve terminals through its role in homologue of the Bl (β1) chain of the widely distributed BL glycoprotein, laminin30.
Cerebellar target neurons provide a stop signal for afferent neurite extension in vitro
TLDR
An in vitro assay system based on the developing mouse cerebellum suggests that specific cell- cell interactions regulate the growth of pontine afferent axons within their cerebellar target, with axoaxonal and axoglial interactions promoting axon extension and axon-target cell interactions interrupting axon extensions.

TLDR
The results suggest that local presentation of bFGF can mimic the muscle target in signaling the development of both a cytoplasmic and a membranous specialization for excitation-secretion coupling observed at the NMJ.
Fibroblast growth factors and their receptors in the central nervous system
TLDR
Fibroblast growth factors and their receptors constitute an elaborate signaling system that participates in many developmental and repair processes of virtually all mammalian tissues and are major determinants of neuronal survival both during development and during adulthood.
Fibroblast growth factor‐2 increases functional excitatory synapses on hippocampal neurons
TLDR
It is shown that the majority of synapses formed in cultures containing FGF‐2 were positive both for presynaptic proteins and postsynaptic excitatory synapse‐specific proteins, and that these synapses had a similar capacity to recycle the fluorescent styryl dye FM4‐64 as those in the control culture.
SynCAM, a Synaptic Adhesion Molecule That Drives Synapse Assembly
TLDR
Glutamatergic synaptic transmission was reconstituted in nonneuronal cells by coexpressing glutamate receptors with SynCAM, which suggests that a single type of adhesion molecule and glutamate receptor are sufficient for a functional postsynaptic response.
