Glutamate regulates actin-based motility in axonal filopodia


The dynamics of axonal arbors during synaptogenesis and their plasticity in the adult nervous system remain poorly understood. Axonal filopodia, which emerge from the shaft of axonal branches and contain small synaptic vesicle clusters, initiate synaptic formation. We found that the movement of axonal filopodia is strongly inhibited by the neurotransmitter… (More)
