We have investigated the possibility that morphologically different excitatory glutamatergic synapses of the "trisynaptic circuit" in the adult rodent hippocampus, which display different types of long-term potentiation (LTP), may express the immunoglobulin superfamily recognition molecules L1 and NCAM, the extracellular matrix molecule tenascin-R, and the extracellular matrix receptor constituent beta1 integrin in a differential manner. The neural cell adhesion molecules L1, NCAM (all three… CONTINUE READING
