The biological role of the glycinergic synapse in early zebrafish motility.


Glycine mediates fast inhibitory neurotransmission in the spinal cord, brainstem and retina. Loss of synaptic glycinergic transmission in vertebrates leads to a severe locomotion defect characterized by an exaggerated startle response accompanied by transient muscle rigidity in response to sudden acoustic or tactile stimuli. Several molecular components of… (More)
