  Honors Program:   The Molecular Choreography of Signaling at the Chemical Synapses of the Brain --- "Fast signal transduction at chemical synapses involves calcium-dependent neurotransmitter release from presynaptic neurons, binding of transmitter to neurotransmitter-gated ion channels located primarily on the postsynaptic membrane, and subsequent uptake of transmitter by way of sodium-coupled neurotransmitter transporters. We are particularly interested in the mechanism by which agonist binding leads to receptor activation, the molecular principles that underlie receptor desensitization or inactivation, and the structural basis for allosteric modulation of receptor activity, as well as the molecular mechanisms to describe the action and inhibition of sodium-coupled neurotransmitter transporters. Here I will define the architectures of AMPA-sensitive glutamate receptors and neurotransmitter transporters and will illustrate the remarkable conformational rearrangements these receptors and transporters undergo throughout their cycles of functional activity." , Eric Gouaux, Ph.D. Senior Scientist, Investigator Vollum Institute, Oregon Health & Science University and HHMI Portland, Oregon , 4:00 PM, SMILOW SEMINAR ROOM - Contact Josephine Markiewicz at 212 263-3815 or at Josephine.Markiewicz@nyumc.org
