Quaternary Structure, Protein Dynamics, and Synaptic Function of SAP97 Controlled by L27 Domain Interactions


Single-particle electron microscopy (EM) combined with biochemical measurements revealed the molecular shape of SAP97 and a monomer-dimer transition that depended on the N-terminal L27 domain. Overexpression of SAP97 drove GluR1 to synapses, potentiated AMPA receptor (AMPAR) excitatory postsynaptic currents (EPSCs), and occluded LTP. Synaptic potentiation… (More)
