- Presynaptic regulation of quantal size: K+/H+ exchange stimulates vesicular glutamate transportGermaine Y Goh
Department of Physiology, Graduate Program in Neuroscience, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA
Nat Neurosci 14:1285-92. 2011..Manipulating presynaptic K(+) at a glutamatergic synapse influenced quantal size, indicating that synaptic vesicle K(+)/H(+) exchange regulates glutamate release and synaptic transmission...
