Abstract

Astrocytic processes at the synapse contribute to neurotransmission, but we understand little about their formation and differentiation. In this issue of Neuron, Yang et al. show that presynaptic input induces expression of the predominant glial transporter involved in glutamate clearance, and this induction involves the transcription factor kappa B-binding protein.
