Perforated postsynaptic densities: probable intermediates in synapse turnover.


The molecular layer of the dentate gyrus of normal rats shows a large incidence of perforated postsynaptic densities (PSDs). The perforations or discontinuities occur almost exclusively in PSDs located in spines showing a U- or W-shaped junctional profile (complex PSDs). Perforated PSDs account for 16-25% of the total complex PSD profiles in young adult… (More)
