Mathematical Modeling of Sustainable Synaptogenesis by Repetitive Stimuli Suggests Signaling Mechanisms In Vivo

Synapse stabling mechanism.

Drebrin induces the assembly of PSD-95 and AMPAR in dendritic protrusions through F-actin accumulation and stabilization, and causes synaptic maintenance. The color difference of F-actin indicates whether the fiber is stable (red) or unstable (pink).
