The efficient delivery of cellular constituents to their proper location is of fundamental importance for all cells and is of particular interest to neuroscientists, because of the unique functions and complex architecture of neurons. Protein Trafficking in Neurons examines mechanisms of protein trafficking and the role of trafficking in neuronal functioning from development to plasticity to disease. The book is divided into seven sections that review mechanisms of protein transport, the role of protein trafficking in synapse formation, exo- and endocytosis, transport of receptors, trafficking of ion channels and transporters, comparison of trafficking mechanisms in neuronal vs. non-neuronal cell types, and the relationship between trafficking and neuronal diseases such as Alzheimer's, Huntington's and Prion Diseases. Provides a comprehensive examination of membrane/protein movement in neuronal function Sections on synapse development, synaptic transmission, and the role of trafficking in neurological disease Includes a focus on Molecular Mechanisms Illustrated with color summary pictures The only book examining protein trafficking and its functional implications, written by leaders in the field

Involvement of Myosin V and Associated Proteins in Protein Trafficking and Neuronal Morphogenesis

Proper neuronal development and function requires precise sorting and delivery of various elements from the soma to the synapse. Important mediators of intracellular transport events are the actin-based class V myosin motors, which are involved in organelle transport in various cell types. Two myosin V family members, myosin Va and

Local Biosynthetic Trafficking of Synaptic Proteins in Neuronal Dendrites

Neurons face the challenge of regulating the abundance, distribution and repertoire of integral membrane proteins on the surface of their immense, architecturally complex dendritic arbors. While the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) supports local translation of secretory cargo in all dendrites, most dendrites lack the Golgi apparatus (GA), an essential organelle for

Neurotransmitter Release

Begins by providing a comprehensive introduction to the features and properties of synapses. It then describes key techniques used to study neurotransmitter release, from calcium entry to exocytosis. This is followed by chapters covering the identification and function of proteins involved in neurotransmitter release, the role of phospholipids in neurosecretion,

Membrane Trafficking and Endocytosis in Neurons

"In mammalian cells, two main membrane trafficking pathways, the secretory and endocytic pathways are important for many biological functions. Secretory proteins are synthesized on ribosomes inside the cells, translocated into the ER for proper folding, later mature in the Golgi and continue their journey to the plasma membrane. Endocytosis is

Molecular Biology of the Neuron

Nerve cells - neurons - are arguably the most complex of all cells. From the action of these cells comes movement, thought and consciousness. It is a challenging task to understand what molecules direct the various diverse aspects of their function. This has produced an ever-increasing amount of molecular information
