...-autonomously. One current model is that factors released from presynaptic axons organize postsynaptic differentiation directly beneath the nerve terminal. Here, we used neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) of the zebrafish primary motor system to test this model. Clusters of neurotransmitter(acetylcholine) receptors...

..., is sufficient to activate the multiple pathways leading to presynaptic and postsynaptic differentiation in vivo. In addition,we find that Musk protein can be clustered at synaptic sites, even if Musk mRNA is expressed uniformly in muscle. Moreover, acetylcholine receptor clustering and motor terminal branching...

...Sangmee Ahn Jo; Steven J. Burden ABSTRACT Nuclei in the synaptic region of multinucleated skeletal myofibers are transcriptionally distinct, since acetylcholine receptor genes are transcribed at a high rate by these nuclei, but not by nuclei elsewhere in the myofiber. Although this spatially...
