Planar cell polarity pathway found to be responsible for the formation and maintenance of synapses

By | October 7, 2021
Within the brain and other parts of the nervous system, synapses are key junctional points in between neurons (the nerve cells) where critical signals are transmitted. More specifically, the “glutamatergic” synapses are the prime “excitatory” synapse junctions that neurons use to activate each other and are known to have broad diversity in size and shape.
