Abstract

The presynaptic cytoskeletal matrix (cytomatrix) assembled at active zones has been implicated in defining neurotransmitter release sites. Munc13, Rim, Bassoon and Piccolo/Aczonin are recently identified presynaptic cytomatrix proteins. These multidomain proteins are thought to organize the exocytotic and endocytotic machinery precisely at active zones.
