Molecular determinants of synaptotagmin I clustering during synapse formation.
Peter Michael Gardzinski
Written in English
Little is known about the mechanisms leading to synaptotagmin I (syt) redistribution and synaptogenesis. Both C2 domains of syt bind with many effector molecules, although the C2B domain appears to play a more important role in neurotransmission than the C2A. Using an in vitro molluscan Lymnaea stagnalis synapse model system and immunohistochemistry, I show that syt localizes at the presynaptic contact site following membrane contact with an identified postsynaptic partner. Target-cell contact (TCC) induces an early transient upregulation in global expression of syt. Using a dominant negative approach, I show that loop 3 of the C2A prevents syt aggregation at the TCC site, whereas loop 3 of the C2B does not. A C-terminal peptide composed of the WHXL motif, important for vesicle docking, also prevents syt clustering. In conclusion, TCC is necessary for syt redistribution in nascent synapses between identified L. stagnalis neurons and requires loop 3 of the C2A.

At the synapse, neurotransmitter release is mediated by the Ca 2+-induced fusion of transmitter-loaded synaptic vesicles with the presynaptic plasma plasma membrane–localized target (t)-SNAREs ([soluble N-ethylmaleimide–sensitive factor attachment protein 25 (SNAP) and syntaxin-1)] and the vesicle (v)–localized v-SNARE (synaptobrevin) and synaptotagmin Cited by: Synaptogenesis is the formation of synapses between neurons in the nervous system. Although it occurs throughout a healthy person's lifespan, an explosion of synapse formation occurs during early brain development, known as exuberant synaptogenesis. Synaptogenesis is particularly important during an individual's critical period, during which there is a certain degree of synaptic pruning due to .
Synaptotagmins Known as: Synaptotagmin, Synaptotagmins [Chemical/Ingredient], Tagmin A family of vesicular transport proteins characterized by an N-terminal transmembrane region and two C-terminal calcium-binding domains. Regulated exocytosis forms the basis for many intercellular signaling processes, for example, in hormone secretion or neurotransmitter release. During regulated exocytosis, the membrane of a secretory vesicle fuses with the plasma membrane in a tightly controlled reaction that is most often triggered by calcium. Recent advances have allowed major insights into the molecular mechanisms Cited by:

Similar to synaptotagmin-1, which functions as a Ca2+ sensor for fast synaptic vesicle (SV) exocytosis, synaptotagmin-7 contains C2A and C2B domains that exhibit Ca2+-dependent phospholipid binding. However, synaptotagmin-7 cannot replace synaptotagmin-1 as a Ca2+ Cited by:

Here we have investigated the role of the putative calcium sensor synaptotagmin I in vesicle aggregation during the formation of soma–soma synapses between identified partner cells using a simple in vitro synapse model in the mollusc Lymnaea stagnalis. Immunocytochemistry, optical imaging and electrophysiological recording techniques were used to monitor synapse formation and vesicle Cited by: Best characterized is synaptotagmin I, a resident of synaptic vesicles and neurosecretory granules.
Synaptotagmin I probably functions as an exocytotic Ca‐receptor that links the calcium signal to membrane fusion by means of Ca‐dependent binding to membranes and (possibly) to SNAREs.
Proper synapse formation in the central nervous system (CNS) during childhood provides the substrate for human perception, learning, memory, and cognition. Conversely, improper formation or function of these synapses leads to many disorders of learning and memory, including autism and other neurodevelopmental by: 2.
Although synapsins are abundant synaptic vesicle proteins that are widely used as markers of presynaptic terminals, the mechanisms that target synapsins to presynaptic terminals have not been elucidated. We have addressed this question by imaging the targeting of green fluorescent protein-tagged synapsins in cultured hippocampal neurons.
Whereas all synapsin isoforms targeted robustly Cited by: Synapse formation and plasticity depend on nuclear transcription and site-specific protein targeting, but the molecular mechanisms that coordinate these steps have not been well defined.

The time required from initial contact to establishment of a functional synapse is only in the range of 1–2 hours, with the formation of a presynaptic terminal occurring in only 10–20 minutes and the recruitment of postsynaptic neurotransmitter receptors taking place in.
