Synaptic Proteins and Receptors

R&D Systems offers a wide range of products directed toward molecules which are essential for synaptic transmission. These include products related to pre-synaptic ion homeostasis, vesicle-mediated neurotransmitter release, and trans-synaptic cell-adhesion. In addition, postsynaptic neurotransmitter receptor and cell-cytoskeleton related products are also available. Synaptic dysfunction is a prominent feature of many neuropathological conditions, including Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease, and other dementias.
