Abstract

The rate of functional synapse formation in NG108-15 neuronal cells transiently transfected with cDNAs of rat synapsin Ia, Ib, IIa and IIb significantly increased during the late phase of coculture with myotubes. The result shows that four synapsins may function equally well in the facilitation of NG108-15-myotube synapse formation.
