Chemical neurotransmission between neurons is a major point for modulation of neuronal activity. The neuronal synapse is the site of continuous cycles of rapid vesicle fusion (exocytosis) followed by their retrieval (endocytosis). Ongoing research efforts are largely focused on synaptic proteins involved in membrane fusion-and-fission, but it is now becoming clear that the dynamic lipid environment, where these proteins operate, also plays a key role in the modulation of chemical transmission… CONTINUE READING
