Identification of complexin II in astrocytes: a possible regulator of glutamate release in these cells.


Complexins are a family of SNARE complex-binding proteins which regulate neurotransmitter release by playing a crucial role in triggering fast exocytosis at the synapse. Current evidence indicates astrocytes can release glutamate via a vesicular mechanism similar to that at nerve terminals and thereby modulate synaptic activity. In addition, components of… (More)
