Axonal transport of receptors
There are several aspects to the study of the life cycle of a receptor molecule. These include its identification, synthesis, transport, insertion into membranes, function, inactivation, turnover, and degradation. Because of the dramatic successes in the past ten to fifteen years in identifying receptors, many of the other aspects can be studied. A main interest of our laboratory over the past several years has been the axonal transport of drug and neurotransmitter receptors.
