Neuroscience: AMPA receptors get 'pickled'

Nature. 2009 Apr 2;458(7238):585-6. doi: 10.1038/458585a.

Abstract

In mediating fast synaptic communication in the brain, AMPA receptors require TARP auxiliary proteins. It seems that another distinct class of proteins also bind to AMPA receptors and regulate their function.
