Formation of the neuromuscular junction requires a series of reciprocal inductive interactions between the motor neuron and the muscle cell that culminate in the precise juxtaposition of a highly specialized presynaptic nerve terminal with a complex postsynaptic endplate on the muscle surface. Although nerve-derived agrin has long been thought to play a key role during neuromuscular junction formation, the molecular mechanisms underlying its actions are only now coming into focus, following the… CONTINUE READING
