    By Michael Hortsch (auth.), Hisashi Umemori, Michael Hortsch (eds.)

    Over the previous few years, various diverse mobilephone adhesion molecules (CAMs) were pointed out which are vital for synapse formation and upkeep. contemporary study, besides the fact that, has additionally published that many synaptic connections are hugely dynamic and never as strong as at first suggestion. a fragile stability among adhesive and anti-adhesive occasions on the synapse means that CAM capabilities are hugely regulated. Dr. Michael Hortsch and Dr. Hisashi Umemori's The Sticky Synapse: mobilephone Adhesion Molecules and Their function in Synapse Formation and upkeep provides the 1st entire synopsis on how adhesive proteins give a contribution to synapse formation, functionality, and reworking. subject matters mentioned diversity from basic synaptic procedures, resembling neuromuscular junction and CNS synapse formation, to CAM-specific chapters on Cadherins, Ig-domain CAMs, Neuroligins, extracellular matrix molecules, Connexins etc, and the way those CAM households give a contribution in particular to synaptic performance. the big variety of common and technical info provided during this ebook will entice scholars, researchers, and clinicians within the fields of molecular and mobile neuroscience, neurophysiology, and developmental neurobiology.
