At the developing neuromuscular junction, motor neuron–derived agrin triggers the differentiation of postsynaptic membrane into a highly specialized structure, where the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (AChRs) are aggregated into high-density clusters. Agrin acts by activating the muscle-specific kinase MuSK and inducing coaggregation of the 43-kDa protein rapsyn with AChRs on muscle cell membrane. The signaling mechanism downstream of MuSK is poorly defined. We report here that the mouse… CONTINUE READING
