Front Syst Neurosci 5. PubMed ID: Summary : A comparison between the axon terminals of octopaminergic efferent dorsal or ventral unpaired median neurons in either desert locusts Schistocerca or fruit flies Drosophila across skeletal muscles reveals many similarities.

In both species the octopaminergic axon forms beaded fibers where the boutons or varicosities form type II terminals in contrast to the neuromuscular junction NMJ or type I terminals.

These type II terminals are immunopositive for both tyramine and octopamine and, in contrast to the type I terminals, which possess clear synaptic vesicles, only contain dense core vesicles.

These dense core vesicles contain octopamine as shown by immunogold methods. With respect to the cytomatrix and active zone peptides the type II terminals exhibit active zone-like accumulations of the scaffold protein Bruchpilot BRP only sparsely in contrast to the many accumulations of BRP identifying active zones of NMJ type I terminals.

In the fruit fly larva marked dynamic changes of octopaminergic fibers have been reported after short starvation which not only affects the formation of new branches "synaptopods" but also affects the type I terminals or NMJs via octopamine-signaling.

Starvation experiments of Drosophila-larvae revealed a time-dependency of the formation of additional branches. Whereas after 2 h of starvation a decrease was found in "synaptopods", the increase is significant after 6 h of starvation.

Indeed, blocking this canonical synaptic release machinery via RNAi induced downregulation of BRP in neurons with type II terminals leads to flight performance deficits similar to those observed for octopamine mutants or flies lacking this class of neurons.

Scholz, N. Complexin cooperates with Bruchpilot to tether synaptic vesicles to the active zone cytomatrix. J Cell Biol 3 : PubMed ID: Summary : Information processing by the nervous system depends on neurotransmitter release from synaptic vesicles SVs at the presynaptic active zone.

Molecular components of the cytomatrix at the active zone CAZ regulate the final stages of the SV cycle preceding exocytosis and thereby shape the efficacy and plasticity of synaptic transmission.

Part of this regulation is reflected by a physical association of SVs with filamentous CAZ structures via largely unknown protein interactions.

Brp and Cpx interact genetically and functionally. Analyzing SV tethering to active zone ribbons of cpx3 knockout mice supports an evolutionarily conserved role of Cpx upstream of SNARE complex assembly.

Driller, J. Phosphorylation of the Bruchpilot N-terminus in Drosophila unlocks axonal transport of active zone building blocks.

J Cell Sci 6. PubMed ID: Summary : Protein scaffolds at presynaptic active zone membranes control information transfer at synapses.

For scaffold biogenesis and maintenance, scaffold components must be safely transported along axons.

A spectrum of kinases has been suggested to control transport of scaffold components, but direct kinase-substrate relationships and operational principles steering phosphorylation-dependent active zone protein transport are presently unknown.

This study shows that extensive phosphorylation of a residue unstructured region at the N-terminus of the highly elongated Bruchpilot BRP active zone protein is crucial for ordered active zone precursor transport in Drosophila.

Point mutations that block SRPK79D kinase-mediated phosphorylation of the BRP N-terminus interfered with axonal transport, leading to BRP-positive axonal aggregates that also contain additional active zone scaffold proteins.

It is assumeed that specific active zone proteins are pre-assembled in transport packages and are thus co-transported as functional scaffold building blocks.

These results suggest that transient post-translational modification of a discrete unstructured domain of the master scaffold component BRP blocks oligomerization of these building blocks during their long-range transport.

Arancibia, D. Cells 8 PubMed ID: Summary : Neurons release neurotransmitters at a specialized region of the presynaptic membrane, the active zone AZ , where a complex meshwork of proteins organizes the release apparatus.

Huang, S. Curr Biol. PubMed ID: Summary : Sleep is universal across species and essential for quality of life and health, as evidenced by the consequences of sleep loss.

Sleep might homeostatically normalize synaptic gains made over wake states in order to reset information processing and storage and support learning, and sleep-associated synaptic ultra structural changes have been demonstrated recently.

However, causal relationships between the molecular and ultra structural status of synapses, sleep homeostatic regulation, and learning processes have yet to be established.

This study shows that the status of the presynaptic active zone can directly control sleep in Drosophila.

Short sleep mutants showed a brain-wide upregulation of core presynaptic scaffold proteins and release factors.

Increasing the gene copy number of ELKS-family scaffold master organizer Bruchpilot BRP not only mimicked changes in the active zone scaffold and release proteins but importantly provoked sleep in a dosage-dependent manner, qualitatively and quantitatively reminiscent of sleep deprivation effects.

Conversely, reducing the brp copy number decreased sleep in short sleep mutant backgrounds, suggesting a specific role of the active zone plasticity in homeostatic sleep regulation.

Finally, elimination of BRP specifically in the sleep-promoting R2 neurons of 4xBRP animals partially restored sleep patterns and rescued learning deficits.

These results suggest that the presynaptic active zone plasticity driven by BRP operates as a sleep homeostatic actuator that also restricts periods of effective learning.

Hong, H. Structural remodeling of active zones is associated with synaptic homeostasis. J Neurosci. PubMed ID: Summary : Perturbations to postsynaptic glutamate receptors GluRs trigger retrograde signaling to precisely increase presynaptic neurotransmitter release, maintaining stable levels of synaptic strength, a process referred to as homeostatic regulation.

However, the structural change of homeostatic regulation remains poorly defined. At wild-type Drosophila neuromuscular junction NMJ synapse, there is one Bruchpilot Brp ring detected by super-resolution microscopy at active zones AZs.

This study reports multiple Brp rings, i. Consistently, multiple Brp rings at AZs were observed in the two classic synaptic homeostasis models, i.

Furthermore, postsynaptic overexpression of the cell adhesion protein Neuroligin 1 partially rescued multiple Brp rings phenotype. This study thus supports that the formation of multiple Brp rings at AZs might be a structural basis for synaptic homeostasis.

Nc82 was used to identify Bruchpilot protein Brp , a previously unknown AZ component. The C terminus of Brp displays structural similarities to multifunctional cytoskeletal proteins.

During development, transcription of bruchpilot coincides with neuronal differentiation. Panneural reduction of Brp expression by RNAi constructs permits a first functional characterization of this large AZ protein: larvae show reduced evoked but normal spontaneous transmission at neuromuscular junctions.

In adults, loss of T bars at active zones, absence of synaptic components in electroretinogram, locomotor inactivity, and unstable flight hence ' bruchpilot ' - German for crash pilot , were observed.

It is proposed that Brp is critical for intact AZ structure and normal-evoked neurotransmitter release at chemical synapses of Drosophila Wagh, Often, electron-dense projections of various shapes plaques, pyramids, T-shaped structures, ribbons extend from the active zone into the presynaptic cytoplasm.

Considerable efforts have been undertaken in recent years to identify and functionally characterize the protein components of these projections and the cytoskeletal matrix associated with the active zone CAZ.

This complex meshwork of proteins most likely constitutes an essential part of the molecular machinery mediating neurotransmitter release.

The fine regulation of this process is believed to be central to nervous system operation including higher functions such as learning, memory, and cognition Wagh, In vertebrates, several components associated with the presynaptic active zone have been characterized.

In addition to the general cytoskeletal proteins actin and spectrin, the large protein Bassoon kDa tom Dieck, ; Shapira, is specifically found at the CAZ.

Several isoforms have been reported to be transcribed from two genes Wang, ; Deguchi-Tawarada, The structure of this gene was analyzed; the Drosophila Brp protein localizes at the presynaptic active zone.

By analyzing various transgenic RNAi lines, the effects were characterized of reduction of Brp expression on synaptic ultrastructure, as well as neurotransmitter release and observe behavioral defects, including unstable flight hence bruchpilot , crash pilot , named after an old German movie about a pilot who always crashes his planes but survives.

Over the last years, some insight into assembly and molecular composition of vertebrate presynaptic active zones has been gained.

Cytoskeletal elements like actin and spectrin, as well as large active-zone-specific proteins like Piccolo and Bassoon, seem to form a structural meshwork organizing various components of the active zone.

Together with vesicular proteins, this complex might control the recruitment of vesicles and regulate their subsequent fusion with the presynaptic membrane.

Deletion of the elks gene in C. The rather uniform distribution of tiny nc82 stained spots in all adult and larval neuropil regions suggests that Brp is present at active zones of most if not all synapses of Drosophila.

The fact that the prominent Northern blot signal is about 5. The signal at 2. No difference was observed with these three probes.

Analysis of the amino acid sequence of Drosophila Brp predicts two leucine zipper domains and a glutamine-rich C terminus but no transmembrane domains.

However, for the large C terminus of Brp aa significant sequence similarities to cytoskeletal proteins such as plectin, myosin heavy chain, and restin are observed, suggesting a possible cytoskeletal role or interaction of the C terminus of Brp Wagh, The expression of Brp is not restricted to the glutamatergic type I boutons of the NMJ, but Brp is present in active zones of presumably all synapses.

The ultrastructure of synaptic active zones in terminals of larval motorneurons and adult photoreceptors is impaired when Brp protein levels are severely reduced.

The loss of T bars in the lamina is compatible with the hypothesis that Brp may be required for anchoring the T bars to the presynaptic membrane.

The fact that similar frequencies of T bars is seen in wild-type photoreceptor terminals Unfortunately, in these experiments the epitope recognized by MAB nc82 did not tolerate tissue fixation conditions required for immunoelectron microscopical analysis of T bars Wagh, Regarding a role of Brp in synaptic function, two RNAi lines with panneural expression were tested.

However, because this lethal and rough eye phenotype is observed only for a single RNAi line, it cannot be excluded that unspecific side effects might play a role.

The description of the true loss-of-function phenotype will therefore have to await the generation of a genuine null mutant.

A special advantage in this context is that Brp presumably is present at all synapses. Drosophila Brp seems to correspond to the neuronal CAST isoforms, whereas the nonneuronal functions might be specific to vertebrates.

This channel seems to be responsible for providing the calcium trigger for evoked neurotransmitter release. The findings indicate, however, that the molecular structure of the presynaptic active zone might be more conserved between vertebrate and insect synapses than thought previously because of the lack of Piccolo and Bassoon homologs in insects.

This study used high resolution light microscopy, electron microscopy, and intravital imaging to analyze the function of BRP in AZ assembly.

This study addressed whether BRP signals T-bar formation without being a direct component of the T-bar or whether the protein itself is an essential building block of this electron-dense structure.

Evidence is provided that BRP is a direct T-bar component. Immuno-EM and light microscopy consistently demonstrate that N- and C-terminal epitopes of BRP are segregated along an axis vertical to the AZ membrane and suggest that BRP is an elongated protein, which directly shapes the T-bar structure Fouquet, In brp 5.

Thus, domains between aa 1, and 1, of BRP may also be important for the formation of T-bars. Clearly, however, the assembly scheme for T-bars is expected to be controlled at several levels e.

Interestingly, light and electron microscopic analysis has located CAST at mammalian synapses both with and without ribbons.

Overall, this study is one of the first to genetically identify a component of an electron-dense synaptic specialization and thus paves the way for further genetic analyses of this subcellular structure Fouquet, Peg-like structures were observed beneath the T-bar pedestal.

Similar to fly T-bars, the frog AZ matrix extends up to 75 nm into the presynaptic cytoplasm. However, a short N-terminal fragment of BRP aa expressed in the brp -null background was unable to localize to AZs efficiently and consistently failed to restore Cac clustering unpublished data Fouquet, It is conceivable that parts of the Cac C terminus extend into the pedestal region of the T-bar cytomatrix to locally interact with the BRP N terminus.

Clearly, additional work will be needed to identify the contributions of discrete protein interactions in the potentially complex AZ protein interaction scheme.

This study should pave the way for a genetic analysis of spatial relationships and structural linkages within the AZ organization. The imaging assays allowed a temporally resolved analysis of AZ assembly in vivo.

Accumulation of Cac was late as well, although it slightly preceded the arrival of BRP, and impaired Cac clustering at AZs lacking BRP became apparent only from a certain synapse size onwards, form at sites distant from preexisting ones and grow to reach a mature, fixed size.

As the dominant fraction of neuromuscular AZs is mature at a given time point, the overall impression is that of a general clustering defect in brp mutants.

Pre- to postsynaptic communication via neurexin-neuroligin interactions might well contribute to this process.

This is likely to confer mature release probability to individual AZs and contribute to matching pre- and postsynaptic assembly by regulating glutamate receptor composition.

Whether similar mechanisms operate during synapse formation and maturation in mammals remains an open question Fouquet, This study concentrated on developmental synapse formation and maturation.

The question arises whether similar mechanisms to those relevant for AZ maturation might control activity-dependent plasticity as well and whether maturation-dependent changes might be reversible at the level of individual synapses.

Notably, experience-dependent, bidirectional changes in the size and number of T-bars occurring within minutes were implied at Drosophila photoreceptor synapses by ultrastructural means.

Moreover, at the crayfish NMJ, multiple complex AZs with double-dense body architecture were produced after stimulation and were associated with higher release probability.

Thus, a detailed understanding of the AZ architecture might permit a prediction of functional properties of individual AZs Fouquet, This study demonstrates axonal co-transport of BRP and RBP using intravital live imaging, with both proteins co-accumulating in axonal aggregates of several transport mutants.

Point mutating this PxxP motif provoked formation of ectopic AZ-like structures at axonal membranes. Direct interactions between AZ proteins and transport adaptors seem to provide complex avidity and shield synaptic interaction surfaces of pre-assembled scaffold protein transport complexes, thus, favouring physiological synaptic AZ assembly over premature assembly at axonal membranes Siebert, How these large and 'sticky'; AZ scaffold components engage into axonal transport processes to ensure their 'safe'; arrival at the synaptic terminal remains to be addressed.

The Aplip1 orthologue Jip1 has been shown to homo-dimerize via interaction of its SH3 domain. Thus, the multiplicity of interactions, with Aplip1 dimers binding to two SH3 domains of RBP as well as to KLC, might form transport complexes of sufficient avidity to ensure tight adaptor—cargo interaction and prevent premature capture of the scaffold components Siebert, Moreover, BRP and RBP co-aggregated in the axoplasm of several other transport mutants tested acsl , unc, appl, unc , consistent with both proteins entering synaptic AZ assembly from a common transport complex.

Since their initial description, however, further investigations of PTVs have been hampered by the apparent relative scarcity of PTVs, and by the lack of genetic or biochemical options for specifically interfering with their transport or final incorporation into AZs Siebert, In contrast to aplip1, the axonal aggregations in khc mutants adapted irregular shapes most of the time, likely not representing T-bar-like structures.

Thus, the data suggest a mechanistic difference when comparing the consequences between eliminating adaptor cargo interactions with a direct impairment of motor functions.

Still, it cannot be excluded that trafficking of AZ complexes naturally antagonizes their ability to assemble into T-bars Siebert, For example, in the context of local translation control, mRNAs are shielded or hidden in messenger ribonucleoprotein particles during transport so that they are withheld from cellular processing events such as translation and degradation.

Shielding is thought to operate through proteins that bind to the mRNA and alter its conformation while at the correct time or place the masking protein is influenced by a signal that alleviates its shielding effect.

As another example, hydrolytic enzymes, for example, lysosomes, are transported as proteolytically inactive precursors that become matured by proteolytic processing only within late endosomes or lysosomes.

Particularly relevant in the context of AZ proteins involved in exocytosis, the H abc domain of Syntaxin-1 folds back on the central helix of the SNARE motif to generate a closed and inactive conformation which might prevent the interaction of Syntaxin-1 with other AZ proteins during diffusion Siebert, Previous genetic analysis of C.

Interestingly, large axonal accumulations in arl-8 mutants displayed a particularly high capture rate. Such opening of interaction surfaces might increase 'premature'; interactions of cargo proteins actually destined for AZ assembly, thus increase overall size of the cargo complexes by oligomerization between AZ proteins and, finally, promote premature capture and ultimately ectopic AZ-like assembly.

On the other hand, the need for the system to unload the AZ cargo at places of physiological assembly i. Notably, Aplip1 also functions as a scaffold for JNK pathway kinases, whose activity causes motor-cargo dissociation.

Thus, JNK signaling, co-ordinated by the Aplip1 scaffold, provides an attractive candidate mechanism for local unloading of SVs and, as shown in this study, AZ cargo at synaptic boutons.

This study further emphasizes the role of the Aplip1 adaptor, whose direct scaffolding role through binding AZ proteins might well be integrated with upstream controls via JNK and MAP kinases.

Intravital imaging in combination with genetics of newly assembling NMJ synapses should be ideally suited to further dissect the obviously delicate interplay between local cues mediating capturing and axonal transport with motor-cargo dissociation Siebert, This study found that distances can be defined by targeting two unc Unc13 isoforms to presynaptic AZ subdomains.

Mathematical modeling suggested that synapses normally operate via two independent release pathways differentially positioned by either isoform.

All presynaptic AZs accumulate scaffold proteins from a canonical set of few protein families, which are characterized by extended coiled-coil stretches, intrinsically unstructured regions and a few classical interaction domains, particularly PDZ and SH3 domains.

As a molecular basis of this patterning and recruitment, a multitude of molecular contacts was identified between the Unc13 N termini and the respective scaffold components using systematic Y2H analysis.

It is suggested that these results are explained by a multitude of parallel interactions that provide the avidity needed to enrich the respective Unc13 isoforms in their specific 'niches' and may cause a functional redundancy among interaction motifs, as was likely observed in the case of the Unc13A PxxP motif.

Future analysis will be needed to investigate these interaction surfaces in greater detail, and address how exactly 'early' and 'late' scaffolds coordinate AZ assembly Bohme, Unc13 proteins have well-established functions in SV docking and priming.

Accordingly, it was observed that loss of Unc13A resulted in overall reduced SV docking without affecting T-bar-tethered SVs, which is qualitatively opposite to a function of BRP in SV localization, whose C-terminal amino acids function in T-bar-tethering, but not docking.

Variants lacking these residues suffer from increased synaptic depression, suggesting a role in SV replenishment. Synapses are highly adapted to their specific features, varying widely concerning their release efficacy and short-term plasticity.

These features impact information transfer and may provide neurons with the ability to detect input coherence, maintain stability and promote synchronization.

Differences in the biochemical milieu of SVs can tune priming efficacy and release probability, which largely affects short-term plasticity.

The distances estimated by the model were in very good agreement with the positions of the two Unc13 isoforms defined by STED microscopy.

It is proposed that the role of the N terminus is to differentially target the isoforms into specific zones of the AZ, while the conserved C terminus confers identical docking and priming functions at both locations.

In contrast, the slow SV release form dominantly localized outside AZ regions. Thus it would be interesting to investigate the sub-AZ distribution of C.

Notable differences in short-term plasticity have been reported for mammalian Unc13 isoforms. The mammalian genome harbors five Munc13 genes.

Of those, Munc, -2 and -3 are expressed in the brain, and function in SV release; differential expression of Munc13 isoforms at individual synapses may represent a mechanism to control short-term plasticity.

Thus, it might be warranted to analyze whether differences in the sub-active zone distribution of Munc13 isoforms contribute to these aspects of synapse diversity in the rodent brain Bohme, Fast and slow phases of release have recently been attributed to parallel release pathways operating in the calyx of Held of young rodents 56 nm and nm qualitatively matching the coexistence of two differentially positioned release pathways described in this study.

Thus, this work suggests that differential positioning of Unc13 isoforms couples functional and structural maturation of AZs.

To what degree modulation of this process contributes to the functional diversification of synapses is an interesting subject of future analysis Bohme, Levels of Par-1 kinase determine the localization of Bruchpilot at the Drosophila neuromuscular junction synapses Functional synaptic networks are compromised in many neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases.

While the mechanisms of axonal transport and localization of synaptic vesicles and mitochondria are relatively well studied, little is known about the mechanisms that regulate the localization of proteins that localize to active zones.

Recent finding suggests that mechanisms involved in transporting proteins destined to active zones are distinct from those that transport synaptic vesicles or mitochondria.

This study reports that localization of BRP -an essential active zone scaffolding protein in Drosophila, depends on the precise balance of neuronal Par-1 kinase.

Temporal analyses demonstrate that accumulation of BRP within axons precedes the loss of synaptic function and its depletion from the active zones.

Mechanistically, it was found that Par-1 co-localizes with BRP and is present in the same molecular complex, raising the possibility of a novel mechanism for selective localization of BRP-like active zone scaffolding proteins.

Taken together, these data suggest an intriguing possibility that mislocalization of active zone proteins like BRP might be one of the earliest signs of synapse perturbation and perhaps, synaptic networks that precede many neurological disorders Barber, Par-1 is an evolutionarily conserved serine threonine kinase that has many diverse roles, including important roles in regulating cell polarity and regulating microtubule stability.

Indeed, animal models of tauopathy show an increase in synapse instability. Synaptic plasticity is determined by its ability to modulate its response to stimulation.

Generally, activity leads to strengthening of synapses, which is bigger response to stimulation. Therefore, maintenance of synapses is important in maintaining the synaptic networks, which are disrupted in both neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases.

Indeed, mutations in cysteine string protein CSP , which plays an important role in synaptic maintenance, causes a progressive motor neuron disorder characterized by neurodegeneration.

Thus, maintaining stable synapses might be important to avoid the failure of synaptic networks Barber, At the Drosophila NMJ synapses, active zones can be rapidly modified to induce synaptic homeostatic changes, which are partly dependent on BRP.

These data suggest that disruption of T-bars might be an early marker for synapse breakdown.

The current data support this hypothesis because it was found that the doughnut shape of T-bars is dramatically altered in flies overexpressing Par-1 and this happens before the decrease in the number of AZs marked by BRP.

Finally, it is posited that loss of BRP from synapses could lead to a failure of synaptic homeostasis because BRP plays an important role in synaptic vesicle release.

Interestingly, loss of synaptic homeostasis has been implicated in early phases of neurodegeneration and, restoring synaptic homeostasis can restore synaptic strength in a Drosophila model of ALS.

Thus, gradual loss of BRP from synapse may impair the ability of a synapse to efficaciously respond to changes that perturb synaptic homeostasis leading to catastrophic failure of neural networks Barber, One of the vital functions performed by axonal transport is to maintain steady state levels of synaptic proteins required for the efficacious release of neurotransmitter release.

Disruption of axonal transport has been implicated in neurodegenerative diseases. Indeed, mutations that affect axonal transport lead to neurodegenerative diseases.

A recent study suggests that active zone density is maintained during the developmental stages but is significantly decreased with aging.

Interestingly, axonal transport also declines with aging suggesting that a combination of decreased axonal transport of active zone proteins along with aging may lead to a gradual decrease in the maintenance of active zones.

This may eventually lead to a failure to maintain synaptic function and ultimately lead to synapse degeneration. While this hypothesis is generally accepted, it has proven difficult to determine whether axonal transport is a cause or consequence of synapse loss.

Temporal analysis suggests that following sequence of events: Par-1 localizes to the axons followed by BRP accumulation in axons likely leading to the decreased synaptic function and finally the reduction of BRP from synaptic active zones likely leading to synapse instability.

Together, these findings support the hypothesis that defects in axonal transport cause synapse degeneration Barber, While so far it is not precisely understandood how active zone scaffold proteins like BRP are localized, based on the present study, it is speculated that phosphorylation of Par-1 substrate may be important in determining the localization of BRP.

This is because the data indicate that BRP and Par-1 may be in the same molecular complex. However, it remains to be determined whether Par-1 can phosphorylate BRP and whether phosphorylation of BRP is required for its localization.

Previous studies have shown that BRP can be acetylated, and that this posttranslational modification is important in regulating the structure of T-bars but whether BRP can be phosphorylated remains to be studied.

Finally, the data indicate that presynaptic Par-1 levels are important in determining BRP localization because Par-1 knockdown also results in the accumulation of BRP within the axons.

Thus, Par-1 not only has an important role in postsynaptic compartment but also has an important function on the presynaptic side. Finally, it should be noted that this study is a limited but an important extension of a previous study of how Par-1 regulates the localization of important active zone proteins such as BRP.

This study also opens up a lot of questions. Does BRP get replaced? If so, at what rate? These are some important questions that should be addressed by future studies but this study opens up the possibility to study these processes in much more detail Barber, During development, fly Syd-1 clusters multiple presynaptic proteins at the neuromuscular junction NMJ , including the cell adhesion molecule Neurexin Nrx-1 and the active zone AZ component Bruchpilot Brp , both of which Syd-1 binds directly.

A mutant form of Syd-1 that specifically lacks GAP activity localizes normally to presynaptic sites and is sufficient to recruit Nrx-1 but fails to cluster Brp normally.

Evidence is provided that Syd-1 participates with Rac1 in two separate functions: 1 together with the Rac guanine exchange factor RacGEF Trio , GAP-active Syd-1 is required to regulate the nucleotide-bound state of Rac1, thereby promoting Brp clustering; and 2 Syd-1, independent of its GAP activity, is required for the recruitment of Nrx-1 to boutons, including the recruitment of Nrx-1 that is promoted by GTP-bound Rac1.

It is concluded that, contrary to current models, the GAP domain of fly Syd-1 is active and required for presynaptic development; it is suggested that the same may be true of vertebrate Syd-1 proteins.

In addition, the data provide new molecular insight into the ability of Rac1 to promote presynaptic development Spinner, This paper has shown that Syd-1 wt and Syd-1 RA promote NMJ growth to similar degrees in wild-type animals and recruit similar levels of Nrx-1 to presynaptic boutons in both wild type and syd-1 mutants.

The phenotype caused by Cdc42 loss from motorneurons an increase in NMJ bouton number is the same as that caused by Rac1 gain, suggesting that Cdc42 and Rac1 might antagonize one another during NMJ development.

However, this model is unlikely for three reasons. First, presynaptic loss of cdc42 significantly enhances the formation of abnormally positioned 'satellite' boutons, a hallmark of increased BMP signaling, and no increase is observed in satellite boutons in animals overexpressing Syd-1 wt or in syd-1 mutants , suggesting that Syd-1 does not normally regulate Cdc42 at NMJ.

Second, whether coexpressing Cdc42 with Rac1 would impair the latter's ability to increase NMJ bouton number was directly tested, and it does not.

Third, a model in which decreasing syd-1 dosage potentiates a Rho GTPase with antagonistic effects on Rac1 does not explain the specific sensitivity of Rac1 wt and not Rac1 V12 to this manipulation.

Finally, it is noted that Syd-1 could also theoretically potentiate Rac1 indirectly by acting upon one of the other two fly Racs, if either of the latter were antagonistic to Rac1.

However, there is no evidence of such antagonism: reducing the levels of one, two, or all three fly Racs has previously been shown either to have no effect or to decrease NMJ bouton number, and the third point above applies to this model too Spinner, The data are therefore more consistent with Syd-1 directly regulating the nucleotide-bound state of Rac1.

How might Rac1 cycling affect Brp recruitment? Alternatively, Syd-1's RhoGAP activity may have an indirect effect on Brp by, in parallel, promoting a Rho GTPase-dependent change in presynaptic structure that facilitates the ability of Syd-1 to cluster Brp properly.

Rho GTPases are classically involved in regulating actin assembly, and presynaptic development is characterized by the early appearance of actin-rich structures to which other molecules, including Syd-1, are recruited.

Perhaps Rac1, regulated by Syd-1 and Trio, sculpts the local actin environment at presynaptic sites, creating a permissive environment for Syd-1 to recruit additional presynaptic components, including Brp Spinner, In contrast to the evidence that Rac1 cycling may be important for Brp clustering, this study found that Rac1 V12 , which stably mimics the GTP-bound state, increases Nrx-1 levels in wild type, and that Syd-1 lacking GAP activity is sufficient to increase Nrx-1 levels, even in the absence of endogenous Syd These results suggest that Rac1 does not need to enter the GDP-bound state in order to promote Nrx-1 recruitment and that Rac1 cycling is therefore not required for this process.

Nonetheless, complete loss of syd-1 prevents Nrx-1 recruitment, even by Rac1 V Together, these results indicate that Syd-1 is required downstream of or in parallel to GTP-bound Rac1 to recruit Nrx-1 to boutons.

Syd-1 and Nrx-1 have previously been shown to bind via an interaction between the former's PDZ domain and the latter's PDZ-binding domain; each protein depends on the other for its localization.

One possibility is that Syd-1 localization or its ability to recruit Nrx-1 is potentiated by direct binding between Syd-1 and GTP-bound Rac1, an interaction of which Syd-1 RA remains capable Spinner, How might this work?

An obvious possibility is that the molecular mechanisms that promote presynaptic assembly differ substantially between vertebrates and invertebrates.

However, it is noted that mice have a second Syd-1 homolog, mSYD1B, which has not yet been analyzed but which may have assumed some of the functions that depend on the single Syd-1 in invertebrates.

Consistent with this possibility, the presynaptic defects caused by mSYD1A loss are far milder than those of the invertebrate syd-1 mutants.

It will be interesting to examine the effects of deleting both mouse Syd-1 proteins and to test the functionality of mutant versions of those proteins in the double mutant animals.

Nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferase maintains active zone structure by stabilizing Bruchpilot Active zones are specialized presynaptic structures critical for neurotransmission.

A neuronal maintenance factor, nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferase NMNAT , is required for maintaining active zone structural integrity in Drosophila by interacting with the active zone protein, Bruchpilot BRP , and shielding it from activity-induced ubiquitin-proteasome-mediated degradation.

It is proposed that, as a neuronal maintenance factor, NMNAT specifically maintains active zone structure by direct protein-protein interaction Zang, The findings of ubiquitinated, clustered and mislocalized BRP in loss-of-NMNAT neurons, and that increased activity leads to increased NMNAT-BRP interaction, together with the observation that active zone structure is maintained in nmnat -null neurons when neuronal activity is reduced, suggest the following model of the activity-dependent role of NMNAT in active zone maintenance.

When neuronal activity is minimized for example, by blocking light stimulation dark rearing , or by blocking phototransduction NorpA , the demand on maintenance by NMNAT is reduced.

Chaperones, such as CSP, have been implicated in maintaining synaptic integrity. Moreover, recent studies have shown that an elevated activity level poses stress to synaptic proteins by highlighting the effect of CSP in maintaining synaptic function.

This notion is supported by a study showing that the level of ubiquitin conjugation of synaptic proteins is altered by the level of synaptic activity.

These studies describe NMNAT as a synapse maintenance factor under normal activity conditions post assembly, when most of the BRP protein is present at the active zone and NMNAT protein is localized to the active zone area to carry out its maintenance function.

Two possibilities might explain this phenotype. Two, these BRP clusters are retrogradely transported from the active zone en route to degradation in the cell body.

Further work will be required to determine the direction of transport. In summary, this work has identified NMNAT as a chaperone for maintaining active zones, and for facilitating their maintenance during neuronal activity by binding to active zone structural protein BRP, adding NMNAT to the list of synaptic chaperones that are required to maintain functional and structural integrity in neurons Zang, HDAC6 is a Bruchpilot deacetylase that facilitates neurotransmitter release Presynaptic densities are specialized structures involved in synaptic vesicle tethering and neurotransmission; however, the mechanisms regulating their function remain understudied.

In Drosophila, Bruchpilot is a major constituent of the presynaptic density that tethers vesicles. Animals expressing TDP harboring pathogenic mutations show increased HDAC6 expression, decreased Bruchpilot acetylation, larger vesicle-tethering sites, and increased neurotransmission, defects similar to those seen upon expression of HDAC6 and opposite to hdac6 null mutants.

Consequently, reduced levels of HDAC6 or increased levels of ELP3, a Bruchpilot acetyltransferase, rescue the presynaptic density defects in TDPexpressing flies as well as the decreased adult locomotion.

This work identifies HDAC6 as a Bruchpilot deacetylase and indicates that regulating acetylation of a presynaptic release-site protein is critical for maintaining normal neurotransmission Miskiewicz, Acetylation of the C-terminal end of BRP results in more condensed T-bars, while deacetylation leads the protein to send excessive tentacles into the cytoplasm to contact more synaptic vesicles.

Similar to chromatin structure being regulated by electrostatic mechanisms at the level of histone acetylation, it is proposed that electrostatic interactions between acetylated and deacetylated lysines in individual BRP strands regulate presynaptic density structure and function Miskiewicz, However, hdac6 null mutant flies did not show overt changes in synaptic features other than T-bar morphology as gauged by electron microscopy, suggesting that axonal transport as a consequence of tubulin defects was not massively affected, although more subtle transport defects cannot be excluded Miskiewicz, BRP is a presynaptic density structural component important to cluster calcium channels at release sites while tethering synaptic vesicles at its C-terminal end.

Corroborating these results, mutations in the BRP C-terminal end brp nude cause defects in vesicle tethering and the maintenance of release during intense 60 Hz stimulation Hallermann et al.

Similarly brp-isoform mutations that leave calcium channel clustering intact but result in a much more condensed T-bar top show a smaller readily releasable vesicle pool, very similar to the defects when BRP is excessively acetylated.

The brp nude mutation shows somewhat less severe defects to maintain synaptic transmission, possibly because more vesicles still manage to tether in these mutants during stimulation compared to the conditions that result in strong shrinking of the T-bar top.

Nonetheless, the data indicate that in flies, BRP orchestrates efficient synaptic transmission during intense activity Miskiewicz, In flies, elp3 mutants also cause active zone deacetylation and more synaptic release.

Together with genetic interactions in fruit flies, the data suggest that decreased HDAC6 function and increased ELP3 function act antagonistically, both in flies and humans.

However, the target s on which these enzymes converge in humans remains to be discovered. It is in this perspective interesting to note that another active zone-associated protein, UNC13A, is implicated in ALS as well, but the pathomechanism of how UNC13A is implicated remains to be elucidated Miskiewicz, Quantitative super-resolution imaging of Bruchpilot distinguishes active zone states The precise molecular architecture of synaptic active zones AZs gives rise to different structural and functional AZ states that fundamentally shape chemical neurotransmission.

However, elucidating the nanoscopic protein arrangement at AZs is impeded by the diffraction-limited resolution of conventional light microscopy.

This study introduces new approaches to quantify endogenous protein organization at single-molecule resolution in situ with super-resolution imaging by direct stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy dSTORM.

Tests were performed for a quantitative relationship between CAZ ultrastructure and neurotransmitter release properties by engaging Drosophila mutants and electrophysiology.

The results indicate that the precise nanoscopic organization of Brp distinguishes different physiological AZ states and link functional diversification to a heretofore unrecognized neuronal gradient of the CAZ ultrastructure Ehmann, External and circadian inputs modulate synaptic protein expression in the visual system of Drosophila melanogaster In the visual system of Drosophila the retina photoreceptors form tetrad synapses with the first order interneurons, amacrine cells and glial cells in the first optic neuropil lamina , in order to transmit photic and visual information to the brain.

The abundance of all synaptic proteins was also changed in the lamina after locomotor and light stimulation.

One hour locomotor stimulations at different time points in LD affected the pattern of the daily rhythm of synaptic proteins.

In turn, light stimulations in DD increased the level of all proteins studied. In the case of SYN, however, this effect was observed only after a short light pulse 15 min.

The abundance of BRP, SYN and DLG in the distal lamina, at the tetrad synapses, is regulated by light and a circadian clock while locomotor stimulation affects their daily pattern of expression.

The observed changes in the level of synaptic markers reflect the circadian plasticity of tetrad synapses regulated by the circadian clock and external inputs, both specific and unspecific for the visual system.

CK2-alpha regulates the transcription of BRP in Drosophila Development and plasticity of synapses are brought about by a complex interplay between various signaling pathways.

Typically, either changing the number of synapses or strengthening an existing synapse can lead to changes during synaptic plasticity.

Altering the machinery that governs the exocytosis of synaptic vesicles, which primarily fuse at specialized structures known as active zones on the presynaptic terminal, brings about these changes.

Although signaling pathways that regulate the synaptic plasticity from the postsynaptic compartments are well defined, the pathways that control these changes presynaptically are poorly described.

Interestingly, the transcripts of other active zone proteins that are important for function of active zones were also increased, while the transcripts from some other synaptic proteins were unchanged.

The Bruchpilot cytomatrix determines the size of the readily releasable pool of synaptic vesicles Synaptic vesicles SVs fuse at a specialized membrane domain called the active zone AZ , covered by a conserved cytomatrix.

How exactly cytomatrix components intersect with SV release remains insufficiently understood. This paper explores additional functions of the cytomatrix, starting with the biochemical identification of two BRP isoforms.

Both isoforms alternated in a circular array and are important for proper T-bar formation. Basal transmission is decreased in isoform-specific mutants, attributable to a reduction in the size of the readily releasable pool RRP of SVs.

A corresponding reduction was found in the number of SVs docked close to the remaining cytomatrix. An elaborate protein cytomatrix covering the AZ membrane is meant to facilitate and control the SV release process.

Quantitative analysis of neurotransmitter release has provided evidence that the number of SV release sites per AZ might be fixed.

Potentially, specific interactions between SVs and certain cytomatrix components might be involved.

This study provides evidence that the BRP-based cytomatrix plays a role in defining the number of readily releasable SVs, possibly by offering morphological and molecular-determined 'release slots' Matkovic, Clearly, it remains a possibility that RIM-binding protein is a major scaffold determinant of the release slots and that e.

The brp -null phenotype can now be interpreted as a 'catastrophic event' in which a complete loss of this large scaffold protein leads to a severe decrease of cytomatrix avidity potentially mediated via a loss of RIM-binding protein below a critical level, resulting in a 'collapse' of the normal cytomatrix architecture.

The distal cytomatrix in brp nude is bare of SVs in EM, and SV replenishment is defective, resulting in short-term depression and not facilitation as in brp nulls.

Nevertheless, a basal release deficit was observed, which can be explained by a reduction in the size of the readily releasable vesicle pool, assigning an additional function to the BRP cytomatrix Matkovic, Release-ready SVs are meant to be molecularly and positionally primed for release.

This in turn is in agreement with BRP itself being important for defining the number of release-ready SVs determined by electrophysiology and EM Matkovic, Light microscopic inspection of an AB directed against the C terminus of BRP, common to both isoforms, with nm STED resolution, typically revealed approximately five dots arranged as a circle or regular pentagon.

Both isoforms were labelled individually, and it was found that 1 both isoforms seem to localize with their C termini similarly toward the distal edge of the cytomatrix and 2 both isoforms typically form an identical number of dots per AZ similar to the number of dots observed with the BRP C-Term AB recognizing both isoforms.

Thus, the BRP isoforms seem to be arranged in neighboring but not overlapping clusters, forming a circular array. Consistent with both BRP isoforms not overlapping in space, there was neither efficient co-IP between them nor did elimination of one isoform substantially interfere with the AZ localization of the respective other isoform.

Thus, BRP and seem to form discrete oligomers. However, beyond providing a discrete morphological architecture, the two BRP isoforms described in this study might harbor additional functionalities.

Future analysis will also have to address whether localization and regulation of additional cytomatrix and release components, such as RIM-binding protein, Unc family proteins, or RIM, contribute to the formation of release slots as well Matkovic, Ultimately, functional differences between individual synaptic sites must be defined by variances in their molecular organization.

Functional features of a synapse can be extracted electrophysiologically. Furthermore, AZ size seems to scale with the overall likelihood of release from a given AZ Holderith, A coupled increase in the size of the T-bar cytomatrix together with increasing SV release was previously observed at NMJs compensating for loss of the glutamate receptor subunit glurIIA.

Moreover, an increase in the number of release-ready SVs together with an increase in the amount of BRP was recently described as part of a homeostatic presynaptic response after pharmacological block of postsynaptic GluRIIA Weyhersmuller, In line with this scenario, it was recently shown that lack of acetylation of BRP in elp3 mutants led to an increase in the complexity of the AZ cytomatrix along with an increase in RRP size Miskiewicz, Furthermore, in vivo imaging of synaptic transmission with single synapse resolution revealed that the likelihood of release correlates with the amount of BRP present at an individual AZ Peled, This cytomatrix size-SV release scaling might be a general principle, as a correlation between the amount of SV exocytosis, measured by an optical assay, and the amount of the AZ protein Bassoon at individual synapses of cultured rat hippocampal neurons has also been observed Matz, The current results suggest that not only the mere size, but also the distinct architecture of the cytomatrix influence release at individual synapses through determining RRP size Matkovic, Unc controls active zone density and protein composition by downregulating ERK signaling Efficient synaptic transmission requires the apposition of neurotransmitter release sites opposite clusters of postsynaptic neurotransmitter receptors.

Transmitter is released at active zones, which are composed of a large complex of proteins necessary for synaptic development and function.

Many active zone proteins have been identified, but little is known of the mechanisms that ensure that each active zone receives the proper complement of proteins.

This study used a genetic analysis in Drosophila to demonstrate that the serine threonine kinase Unc see Atg1 acts in the presynaptic motoneuron to regulate the localization of the active zone protein Bruchpilot opposite to glutamate receptors at each synapse.

In the absence of Unc, many glutamate receptor clusters are unapposed to Bruchpilot, and ultrastructural analysis demonstrates that fewer active zones contain dense body T-bars.

In addition to the presence of these aberrant synapses, there is also a decrease in the density of all synapses.

This decrease in synaptic density and abnormal active zone composition is associated with impaired evoked transmitter release. In the unc mutant, increased ERK activity leads to the decrease in synaptic density and the absence of Bruchpilot from many synapses.

Hence, activated ERK negatively regulates synapse formation, resulting in either the absence of active zones or the formation of active zones without their proper complement of proteins.

The Uncdependent inhibition of ERK activity provides a potential mechanism for synapse-specific control of active zone protein composition and release probability Wairkar, A large-scale anatomical screen was performed to identify mutants where not every glutamate receptor cluster is apposed to Bruchpilot.

Such mutants were identified by the presence of glutamate receptor clusters unapposed to Bruchpilot puncta. In this screen, mutants were identified in unc Wairkar, Such misapposition could reflect either DGluRIII clusters unapposed to active zones, or receptor clusters apposed to abnormal active zones that do not contain Brp.

The ideal experiment to distinguish between these possibilities would be to stain for other presynaptic active zone proteins.

Unfortunately the only other such protein that can be visualized in Drosophila is the calcium channel Cacophony, and since its localization depends on Brp this experiment is not be informative.

Interestingly, loss visit web page synaptic homeostasis has been implicated in early phases of neurodegeneration and, restoring synaptic homeostasis can restore synaptic strength in a Drosophila model of ALS.

J Cell Biol 3 : PubMed ID: Summary : Information processing by the nervous system depends on neurotransmitter release from synaptic vesicles SVs at the presynaptic active zone.

Molecular components of the cytomatrix at the active zone CAZ regulate the final stages of the SV cycle preceding exocytosis and thereby shape the efficacy and plasticity of synaptic transmission.

Part of this regulation is reflected by a physical association of SVs with filamentous CAZ structures via largely unknown protein interactions.

Brp and Cpx interact genetically and functionally. Analyzing SV tethering to active zone ribbons of cpx3 knockout mice supports an evolutionarily conserved role of Cpx upstream of SNARE complex assembly.

PubMed ID: Summary : Protein scaffolds at presynaptic active zone membranes control information transfer at synapses.

For scaffold biogenesis and maintenance, scaffold components must be safely transported along axons.

A spectrum of kinases has been suggested to control transport of scaffold components, but direct kinase-substrate relationships and operational principles steering phosphorylation-dependent active zone protein transport are presently unknown.

This study shows that extensive phosphorylation of a residue unstructured region at the N-terminus of the highly elongated Bruchpilot BRP active zone protein is crucial for ordered active zone precursor transport in Drosophila.

Point mutations that block SRPK79D kinase-mediated phosphorylation of the BRP N-terminus interfered with axonal transport, leading to BRP-positive axonal aggregates that also contain additional active zone scaffold proteins.

It is assumeed that specific active zone proteins are pre-assembled in transport packages and are thus co-transported as functional scaffold building blocks.

These results suggest that transient post-translational modification of a discrete unstructured domain of the master scaffold component BRP blocks oligomerization of these building blocks during their long-range transport.

Huang, S. Curr Biol. PubMed ID: Summary : Sleep is universal across species and essential for quality of life and health, as evidenced by the consequences of sleep loss.

Sleep might homeostatically normalize synaptic gains made over wake states in order to reset information processing and storage and support learning, and sleep-associated synaptic ultra structural changes have been demonstrated recently.

However, causal relationships between the molecular and ultra structural status of synapses, sleep homeostatic regulation, and learning processes have yet to be established.

This study shows that the status of the presynaptic active zone can directly control sleep in Drosophila.

Short sleep mutants showed a brain-wide upregulation of core presynaptic scaffold proteins and release factors. Increasing the gene copy number of ELKS-family scaffold master organizer Bruchpilot BRP not only mimicked changes in the active zone scaffold and release proteins but importantly provoked sleep in a dosage-dependent manner, qualitatively and quantitatively reminiscent of sleep deprivation effects.

Conversely, reducing the brp copy number decreased sleep in short sleep mutant backgrounds, suggesting a specific role of the active zone plasticity in homeostatic sleep regulation.

Finally, elimination of BRP specifically in the sleep-promoting R2 neurons of 4xBRP animals partially restored sleep patterns and rescued learning deficits.

These results suggest that the presynaptic active zone plasticity driven by BRP operates as a sleep homeostatic actuator that also restricts periods of effective learning.

Hong, H. Structural remodeling of active zones is associated with synaptic homeostasis. J Neurosci. PubMed ID: Summary : Perturbations to postsynaptic glutamate receptors GluRs trigger retrograde signaling to precisely increase presynaptic neurotransmitter release, maintaining stable levels of synaptic strength, a process referred to as homeostatic regulation.

However, the structural change of homeostatic regulation remains poorly defined. At wild-type Drosophila neuromuscular junction NMJ synapse, there is one Bruchpilot Brp ring detected by super-resolution microscopy at active zones AZs.

This study reports multiple Brp rings, i. Consistently, multiple Brp rings at AZs were observed in the two classic synaptic homeostasis models, i.

Furthermore, postsynaptic overexpression of the cell adhesion protein Neuroligin 1 partially rescued multiple Brp rings phenotype. This study thus supports that the formation of multiple Brp rings at AZs might be a structural basis for synaptic homeostasis.

Nc82 was used to identify Bruchpilot protein Brp , a previously unknown AZ component. The C terminus of Brp displays structural similarities to multifunctional cytoskeletal proteins.

During development, transcription of bruchpilot coincides with neuronal differentiation. Panneural reduction of Brp expression by RNAi constructs permits a first functional characterization of this large AZ protein: larvae show reduced evoked but normal spontaneous transmission at neuromuscular junctions.

In adults, loss of T bars at active zones, absence of synaptic components in electroretinogram, locomotor inactivity, and unstable flight hence ' bruchpilot ' - German for crash pilot , were observed.

It is proposed that Brp is critical for intact AZ structure and normal-evoked neurotransmitter release at chemical synapses of Drosophila Wagh, Often, electron-dense projections of various shapes plaques, pyramids, T-shaped structures, ribbons extend from the active zone into the presynaptic cytoplasm.

Considerable efforts have been undertaken in recent years to identify and functionally characterize the protein components of these projections and the cytoskeletal matrix associated with the active zone CAZ.

This complex meshwork of proteins most likely constitutes an essential part of the molecular machinery mediating neurotransmitter release.

The fine regulation of this process is believed to be central to nervous system operation including higher functions such as learning, memory, and cognition Wagh, In vertebrates, several components associated with the presynaptic active zone have been characterized.

In addition to the general cytoskeletal proteins actin and spectrin, the large protein Bassoon kDa tom Dieck, ; Shapira, is specifically found at the CAZ.

Several isoforms have been reported to be transcribed from two genes Wang, ; Deguchi-Tawarada, The structure of this gene was analyzed; the Drosophila Brp protein localizes at the presynaptic active zone.

By analyzing various transgenic RNAi lines, the effects were characterized of reduction of Brp expression on synaptic ultrastructure, as well as neurotransmitter release and observe behavioral defects, including unstable flight hence bruchpilot , crash pilot , named after an old German movie about a pilot who always crashes his planes but survives.

Over the last years, some insight into assembly and molecular composition of vertebrate presynaptic active zones has been gained.

Cytoskeletal elements like actin and spectrin, as well as large active-zone-specific proteins like Piccolo and Bassoon, seem to form a structural meshwork organizing various components of the active zone.

Together with vesicular proteins, this complex might control the recruitment of vesicles and regulate their subsequent fusion with the presynaptic membrane.

Deletion of the elks gene in C. The rather uniform distribution of tiny nc82 stained spots in all adult and larval neuropil regions suggests that Brp is present at active zones of most if not all synapses of Drosophila.

The fact that the prominent Northern blot signal is about 5. The signal at 2. No difference was observed with these three probes. Analysis of the amino acid sequence of Drosophila Brp predicts two leucine zipper domains and a glutamine-rich C terminus but no transmembrane domains.

However, for the large C terminus of Brp aa significant sequence similarities to cytoskeletal proteins such as plectin, myosin heavy chain, and restin are observed, suggesting a possible cytoskeletal role or interaction of the C terminus of Brp Wagh, The expression of Brp is not restricted to the glutamatergic type I boutons of the NMJ, but Brp is present in active zones of presumably all synapses.

The ultrastructure of synaptic active zones in terminals of larval motorneurons and adult photoreceptors is impaired when Brp protein levels are severely reduced.

The loss of T bars in the lamina is compatible with the hypothesis that Brp may be required for anchoring the T bars to the presynaptic membrane.

The fact that similar frequencies of T bars is seen in wild-type photoreceptor terminals Unfortunately, in these experiments the epitope recognized by MAB nc82 did not tolerate tissue fixation conditions required for immunoelectron microscopical analysis of T bars Wagh, Regarding a role of Brp in synaptic function, two RNAi lines with panneural expression were tested.

However, because this lethal and rough eye phenotype is observed only for a single RNAi line, it cannot be excluded that unspecific side effects might play a role.

The description of the true loss-of-function phenotype will therefore have to await the generation of a genuine null mutant.

A special advantage in this context is that Brp presumably is present at all synapses. Drosophila Brp seems to correspond to the neuronal CAST isoforms, whereas the nonneuronal functions might be specific to vertebrates.

This channel seems to be responsible for providing the calcium trigger for evoked neurotransmitter release.

The findings indicate, however, that the molecular structure of the presynaptic active zone might be more conserved between vertebrate and insect synapses than thought previously because of the lack of Piccolo and Bassoon homologs in insects.

This study used high resolution light microscopy, electron microscopy, and intravital imaging to analyze the function of BRP in AZ assembly.

This study addressed whether BRP signals T-bar formation without being a direct component of the T-bar or whether the protein itself is an essential building block of this electron-dense structure.

Evidence is provided that BRP is a direct T-bar component. Immuno-EM and light microscopy consistently demonstrate that N- and C-terminal epitopes of BRP are segregated along an axis vertical to the AZ membrane and suggest that BRP is an elongated protein, which directly shapes the T-bar structure Fouquet, In brp 5.

Thus, domains between aa 1, and 1, of BRP may also be important for the formation of T-bars. Clearly, however, the assembly scheme for T-bars is expected to be controlled at several levels e.

Interestingly, light and electron microscopic analysis has located CAST at mammalian synapses both with and without ribbons.

Overall, this study is one of the first to genetically identify a component of an electron-dense synaptic specialization and thus paves the way for further genetic analyses of this subcellular structure Fouquet, Peg-like structures were observed beneath the T-bar pedestal.

Similar to fly T-bars, the frog AZ matrix extends up to 75 nm into the presynaptic cytoplasm. However, a short N-terminal fragment of BRP aa expressed in the brp -null background was unable to localize to AZs efficiently and consistently failed to restore Cac clustering unpublished data Fouquet, It is conceivable that parts of the Cac C terminus extend into the pedestal region of the T-bar cytomatrix to locally interact with the BRP N terminus.

Clearly, additional work will be needed to identify the contributions of discrete protein interactions in the potentially complex AZ protein interaction scheme.

This study should pave the way for a genetic analysis of spatial relationships and structural linkages within the AZ organization.

The imaging assays allowed a temporally resolved analysis of AZ assembly in vivo. Accumulation of Cac was late as well, although it slightly preceded the arrival of BRP, and impaired Cac clustering at AZs lacking BRP became apparent only from a certain synapse size onwards, form at sites distant from preexisting ones and grow to reach a mature, fixed size.

As the dominant fraction of neuromuscular AZs is mature at a given time point, the overall impression is that of a general clustering defect in brp mutants.

Pre- to postsynaptic communication via neurexin-neuroligin interactions might well contribute to this process.

This is likely to confer mature release probability to individual AZs and contribute to matching pre- and postsynaptic assembly by regulating glutamate receptor composition.

Whether similar mechanisms operate during synapse formation and maturation in mammals remains an open question Fouquet, This study concentrated on developmental synapse formation and maturation.

The question arises whether similar mechanisms to those relevant for AZ maturation might control activity-dependent plasticity as well and whether maturation-dependent changes might be reversible at the level of individual synapses.

Notably, experience-dependent, bidirectional changes in the size and number of T-bars occurring within minutes were implied at Drosophila photoreceptor synapses by ultrastructural means.

Moreover, at the crayfish NMJ, multiple complex AZs with double-dense body architecture were produced after stimulation and were associated with higher release probability.

Thus, a detailed understanding of the AZ architecture might permit a prediction of functional properties of individual AZs Fouquet, This study demonstrates axonal co-transport of BRP and RBP using intravital live imaging, with both proteins co-accumulating in axonal aggregates of several transport mutants.

Point mutating this PxxP motif provoked formation of ectopic AZ-like structures at axonal membranes.

Direct interactions between AZ proteins and transport adaptors seem to provide complex avidity and shield synaptic interaction surfaces of pre-assembled scaffold protein transport complexes, thus, favouring physiological synaptic AZ assembly over premature assembly at axonal membranes Siebert, How these large and 'sticky'; AZ scaffold components engage into axonal transport processes to ensure their 'safe'; arrival at the synaptic terminal remains to be addressed.

The Aplip1 orthologue Jip1 has been shown to homo-dimerize via interaction of its SH3 domain. Thus, the multiplicity of interactions, with Aplip1 dimers binding to two SH3 domains of RBP as well as to KLC, might form transport complexes of sufficient avidity to ensure tight adaptor—cargo interaction and prevent premature capture of the scaffold components Siebert, Moreover, BRP and RBP co-aggregated in the axoplasm of several other transport mutants tested acsl , unc, appl, unc , consistent with both proteins entering synaptic AZ assembly from a common transport complex.

Since their initial description, however, further investigations of PTVs have been hampered by the apparent relative scarcity of PTVs, and by the lack of genetic or biochemical options for specifically interfering with their transport or final incorporation into AZs Siebert, In contrast to aplip1, the axonal aggregations in khc mutants adapted irregular shapes most of the time, likely not representing T-bar-like structures.

Thus, the data suggest a mechanistic difference when comparing the consequences between eliminating adaptor cargo interactions with a direct impairment of motor functions.

Still, it cannot be excluded that trafficking of AZ complexes naturally antagonizes their ability to assemble into T-bars Siebert, For example, in the context of local translation control, mRNAs are shielded or hidden in messenger ribonucleoprotein particles during transport so that they are withheld from cellular processing events such as translation and degradation.

Shielding is thought to operate through proteins that bind to the mRNA and alter its conformation while at the correct time or place the masking protein is influenced by a signal that alleviates its shielding effect.

As another example, hydrolytic enzymes, for example, lysosomes, are transported as proteolytically inactive precursors that become matured by proteolytic processing only within late endosomes or lysosomes.

Particularly relevant in the context of AZ proteins involved in exocytosis, the H abc domain of Syntaxin-1 folds back on the central helix of the SNARE motif to generate a closed and inactive conformation which might prevent the interaction of Syntaxin-1 with other AZ proteins during diffusion Siebert, Previous genetic analysis of C.

Interestingly, large axonal accumulations in arl-8 mutants displayed a particularly high capture rate.

Such opening of interaction surfaces might increase 'premature'; interactions of cargo proteins actually destined for AZ assembly, thus increase overall size of the cargo complexes by oligomerization between AZ proteins and, finally, promote premature capture and ultimately ectopic AZ-like assembly.

On the other hand, the need for the system to unload the AZ cargo at places of physiological assembly i. Notably, Aplip1 also functions as a scaffold for JNK pathway kinases, whose activity causes motor-cargo dissociation.

Thus, JNK signaling, co-ordinated by the Aplip1 scaffold, provides an attractive candidate mechanism for local unloading of SVs and, as shown in this study, AZ cargo at synaptic boutons.

This study further emphasizes the role of the Aplip1 adaptor, whose direct scaffolding role through binding AZ proteins might well be integrated with upstream controls via JNK and MAP kinases.

Intravital imaging in combination with genetics of newly assembling NMJ synapses should be ideally suited to further dissect the obviously delicate interplay between local cues mediating capturing and axonal transport with motor-cargo dissociation Siebert, This study found that distances can be defined by targeting two unc Unc13 isoforms to presynaptic AZ subdomains.

Mathematical modeling suggested that synapses normally operate via two independent release pathways differentially positioned by either isoform.

All presynaptic AZs accumulate scaffold proteins from a canonical set of few protein families, which are characterized by extended coiled-coil stretches, intrinsically unstructured regions and a few classical interaction domains, particularly PDZ and SH3 domains.

As a molecular basis of this patterning and recruitment, a multitude of molecular contacts was identified between the Unc13 N termini and the respective scaffold components using systematic Y2H analysis.

It is suggested that these results are explained by a multitude of parallel interactions that provide the avidity needed to enrich the respective Unc13 isoforms in their specific 'niches' and may cause a functional redundancy among interaction motifs, as was likely observed in the case of the Unc13A PxxP motif.

Future analysis will be needed to investigate these interaction surfaces in greater detail, and address how exactly 'early' and 'late' scaffolds coordinate AZ assembly Bohme, Unc13 proteins have well-established functions in SV docking and priming.

Accordingly, it was observed that loss of Unc13A resulted in overall reduced SV docking without affecting T-bar-tethered SVs, which is qualitatively opposite to a function of BRP in SV localization, whose C-terminal amino acids function in T-bar-tethering, but not docking.

Variants lacking these residues suffer from increased synaptic depression, suggesting a role in SV replenishment. Synapses are highly adapted to their specific features, varying widely concerning their release efficacy and short-term plasticity.

These features impact information transfer and may provide neurons with the ability to detect input coherence, maintain stability and promote synchronization.

Differences in the biochemical milieu of SVs can tune priming efficacy and release probability, which largely affects short-term plasticity.

The distances estimated by the model were in very good agreement with the positions of the two Unc13 isoforms defined by STED microscopy.

It is proposed that the role of the N terminus is to differentially target the isoforms into specific zones of the AZ, while the conserved C terminus confers identical docking and priming functions at both locations.

In contrast, the slow SV release form dominantly localized outside AZ regions. Thus it would be interesting to investigate the sub-AZ distribution of C.

Notable differences in short-term plasticity have been reported for mammalian Unc13 isoforms. The mammalian genome harbors five Munc13 genes.

Of those, Munc, -2 and -3 are expressed in the brain, and function in SV release; differential expression of Munc13 isoforms at individual synapses may represent a mechanism to control short-term plasticity.

Thus, it might be warranted to analyze whether differences in the sub-active zone distribution of Munc13 isoforms contribute to these aspects of synapse diversity in the rodent brain Bohme, Fast and slow phases of release have recently been attributed to parallel release pathways operating in the calyx of Held of young rodents 56 nm and nm qualitatively matching the coexistence of two differentially positioned release pathways described in this study.

Thus, this work suggests that differential positioning of Unc13 isoforms couples functional and structural maturation of AZs. To what degree modulation of this process contributes to the functional diversification of synapses is an interesting subject of future analysis Bohme, Levels of Par-1 kinase determine the localization of Bruchpilot at the Drosophila neuromuscular junction synapses Functional synaptic networks are compromised in many neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases.

While the mechanisms of axonal transport and localization of synaptic vesicles and mitochondria are relatively well studied, little is known about the mechanisms that regulate the localization of proteins that localize to active zones.

Recent finding suggests that mechanisms involved in transporting proteins destined to active zones are distinct from those that transport synaptic vesicles or mitochondria.

This study reports that localization of BRP -an essential active zone scaffolding protein in Drosophila, depends on the precise balance of neuronal Par-1 kinase.

Temporal analyses demonstrate that accumulation of BRP within axons precedes the loss of synaptic function and its depletion from the active zones.

Mechanistically, it was found that Par-1 co-localizes with BRP and is present in the same molecular complex, raising the possibility of a novel mechanism for selective localization of BRP-like active zone scaffolding proteins.

Taken together, these data suggest an intriguing possibility that mislocalization of active zone proteins like BRP might be one of the earliest signs of synapse perturbation and perhaps, synaptic networks that precede many neurological disorders Barber, Par-1 is an evolutionarily conserved serine threonine kinase that has many diverse roles, including important roles in regulating cell polarity and regulating microtubule stability.

Indeed, animal models of tauopathy show an increase in synapse instability. Synaptic plasticity is determined by its ability to modulate its response to stimulation.

Generally, activity leads to strengthening of synapses, which is bigger response to stimulation. Therefore, maintenance of synapses is important in maintaining the synaptic networks, which are disrupted in both neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases.

Indeed, mutations in cysteine string protein CSP , which plays an important role in synaptic maintenance, causes a progressive motor neuron disorder characterized by neurodegeneration.

Thus, maintaining stable synapses might be important to avoid the failure of synaptic networks Barber, At the Drosophila NMJ synapses, active zones can be rapidly modified to induce synaptic homeostatic changes, which are partly dependent on BRP.

These data suggest that disruption of T-bars might be an early marker for synapse breakdown. The current data support this hypothesis because it was found that the doughnut shape of T-bars is dramatically altered in flies overexpressing Par-1 and this happens before the decrease in the number of AZs marked by BRP.

Finally, it is posited that loss of BRP from synapses could lead to a failure of synaptic homeostasis because BRP plays an important role in synaptic vesicle release.

Interestingly, loss of synaptic homeostasis has been implicated in early phases of neurodegeneration and, restoring synaptic homeostasis can restore synaptic strength in a Drosophila model of ALS.

Thus, gradual loss of BRP from synapse may impair the ability of a synapse to efficaciously respond to changes that perturb synaptic homeostasis leading to catastrophic failure of neural networks Barber, One of the vital functions performed by axonal transport is to maintain steady state levels of synaptic proteins required for the efficacious release of neurotransmitter release.

Disruption of axonal transport has been implicated in neurodegenerative diseases. Indeed, mutations that affect axonal transport lead to neurodegenerative diseases.

A recent study suggests that active zone density is maintained during the developmental stages but is significantly decreased with aging.

Interestingly, axonal transport also declines with aging suggesting that a combination of decreased axonal transport of active zone proteins along with aging may lead to a gradual decrease in the maintenance of active zones.

This may eventually lead to a failure to maintain synaptic function and ultimately lead to synapse degeneration. While this hypothesis is generally accepted, it has proven difficult to determine whether axonal transport is a cause or consequence of synapse loss.

Temporal analysis suggests that following sequence of events: Par-1 localizes to the axons followed by BRP accumulation in axons likely leading to the decreased synaptic function and finally the reduction of BRP from synaptic active zones likely leading to synapse instability.

Together, these findings support the hypothesis that defects in axonal transport cause synapse degeneration Barber, While so far it is not precisely understandood how active zone scaffold proteins like BRP are localized, based on the present study, it is speculated that phosphorylation of Par-1 substrate may be important in determining the localization of BRP.

This is because the data indicate that BRP and Par-1 may be in the same molecular complex. However, it remains to be determined whether Par-1 can phosphorylate BRP and whether phosphorylation of BRP is required for its localization.

Previous studies have shown that BRP can be acetylated, and that this posttranslational modification is important in regulating the structure of T-bars but whether BRP can be phosphorylated remains to be studied.

Finally, the data indicate that presynaptic Par-1 levels are important in determining BRP localization because Par-1 knockdown also results in the accumulation of BRP within the axons.

Thus, Par-1 not only has an important role in postsynaptic compartment but also has an important function on the presynaptic side.

Finally, it should be noted that this study is a limited but an important extension of a previous study of how Par-1 regulates the localization of important active zone proteins such as BRP.

This study also opens up a lot of questions. Does BRP get replaced? If so, at what rate? These are some important questions that should be addressed by future studies but this study opens up the possibility to study these processes in much more detail Barber, During development, fly Syd-1 clusters multiple presynaptic proteins at the neuromuscular junction NMJ , including the cell adhesion molecule Neurexin Nrx-1 and the active zone AZ component Bruchpilot Brp , both of which Syd-1 binds directly.

A mutant form of Syd-1 that specifically lacks GAP activity localizes normally to presynaptic sites and is sufficient to recruit Nrx-1 but fails to cluster Brp normally.

Evidence is provided that Syd-1 participates with Rac1 in two separate functions: 1 together with the Rac guanine exchange factor RacGEF Trio , GAP-active Syd-1 is required to regulate the nucleotide-bound state of Rac1, thereby promoting Brp clustering; and 2 Syd-1, independent of its GAP activity, is required for the recruitment of Nrx-1 to boutons, including the recruitment of Nrx-1 that is promoted by GTP-bound Rac1.

It is concluded that, contrary to current models, the GAP domain of fly Syd-1 is active and required for presynaptic development; it is suggested that the same may be true of vertebrate Syd-1 proteins.

In addition, the data provide new molecular insight into the ability of Rac1 to promote presynaptic development Spinner, This paper has shown that Syd-1 wt and Syd-1 RA promote NMJ growth to similar degrees in wild-type animals and recruit similar levels of Nrx-1 to presynaptic boutons in both wild type and syd-1 mutants.

The phenotype caused by Cdc42 loss from motorneurons an increase in NMJ bouton number is the same as that caused by Rac1 gain, suggesting that Cdc42 and Rac1 might antagonize one another during NMJ development.

However, this model is unlikely for three reasons. First, presynaptic loss of cdc42 significantly enhances the formation of abnormally positioned 'satellite' boutons, a hallmark of increased BMP signaling, and no increase is observed in satellite boutons in animals overexpressing Syd-1 wt or in syd-1 mutants , suggesting that Syd-1 does not normally regulate Cdc42 at NMJ.

Second, whether coexpressing Cdc42 with Rac1 would impair the latter's ability to increase NMJ bouton number was directly tested, and it does not.

Third, a model in which decreasing syd-1 dosage potentiates a Rho GTPase with antagonistic effects on Rac1 does not explain the specific sensitivity of Rac1 wt and not Rac1 V12 to this manipulation.

Finally, it is noted that Syd-1 could also theoretically potentiate Rac1 indirectly by acting upon one of the other two fly Racs, if either of the latter were antagonistic to Rac1.

However, there is no evidence of such antagonism: reducing the levels of one, two, or all three fly Racs has previously been shown either to have no effect or to decrease NMJ bouton number, and the third point above applies to this model too Spinner, The data are therefore more consistent with Syd-1 directly regulating the nucleotide-bound state of Rac1.

How might Rac1 cycling affect Brp recruitment? Alternatively, Syd-1's RhoGAP activity may have an indirect effect on Brp by, in parallel, promoting a Rho GTPase-dependent change in presynaptic structure that facilitates the ability of Syd-1 to cluster Brp properly.

Rho GTPases are classically involved in regulating actin assembly, and presynaptic development is characterized by the early appearance of actin-rich structures to which other molecules, including Syd-1, are recruited.

Perhaps Rac1, regulated by Syd-1 and Trio, sculpts the local actin environment at presynaptic sites, creating a permissive environment for Syd-1 to recruit additional presynaptic components, including Brp Spinner, In contrast to the evidence that Rac1 cycling may be important for Brp clustering, this study found that Rac1 V12 , which stably mimics the GTP-bound state, increases Nrx-1 levels in wild type, and that Syd-1 lacking GAP activity is sufficient to increase Nrx-1 levels, even in the absence of endogenous Syd These results suggest that Rac1 does not need to enter the GDP-bound state in order to promote Nrx-1 recruitment and that Rac1 cycling is therefore not required for this process.

Nonetheless, complete loss of syd-1 prevents Nrx-1 recruitment, even by Rac1 V Together, these results indicate that Syd-1 is required downstream of or in parallel to GTP-bound Rac1 to recruit Nrx-1 to boutons.

Syd-1 and Nrx-1 have previously been shown to bind via an interaction between the former's PDZ domain and the latter's PDZ-binding domain; each protein depends on the other for its localization.

One possibility is that Syd-1 localization or its ability to recruit Nrx-1 is potentiated by direct binding between Syd-1 and GTP-bound Rac1, an interaction of which Syd-1 RA remains capable Spinner, How might this work?

An obvious possibility is that the molecular mechanisms that promote presynaptic assembly differ substantially between vertebrates and invertebrates.

However, it is noted that mice have a second Syd-1 homolog, mSYD1B, which has not yet been analyzed but which may have assumed some of the functions that depend on the single Syd-1 in invertebrates.

Consistent with this possibility, the presynaptic defects caused by mSYD1A loss are far milder than those of the invertebrate syd-1 mutants.

It will be interesting to examine the effects of deleting both mouse Syd-1 proteins and to test the functionality of mutant versions of those proteins in the double mutant animals.

Nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferase maintains active zone structure by stabilizing Bruchpilot Active zones are specialized presynaptic structures critical for neurotransmission.

A neuronal maintenance factor, nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferase NMNAT , is required for maintaining active zone structural integrity in Drosophila by interacting with the active zone protein, Bruchpilot BRP , and shielding it from activity-induced ubiquitin-proteasome-mediated degradation.

It is proposed that, as a neuronal maintenance factor, NMNAT specifically maintains active zone structure by direct protein-protein interaction Zang, The findings of ubiquitinated, clustered and mislocalized BRP in loss-of-NMNAT neurons, and that increased activity leads to increased NMNAT-BRP interaction, together with the observation that active zone structure is maintained in nmnat -null neurons when neuronal activity is reduced, suggest the following model of the activity-dependent role of NMNAT in active zone maintenance.

When neuronal activity is minimized for example, by blocking light stimulation dark rearing , or by blocking phototransduction NorpA , the demand on maintenance by NMNAT is reduced.

Chaperones, such as CSP, have been implicated in maintaining synaptic integrity. Moreover, recent studies have shown that an elevated activity level poses stress to synaptic proteins by highlighting the effect of CSP in maintaining synaptic function.

This notion is supported by a study showing that the level of ubiquitin conjugation of synaptic proteins is altered by the level of synaptic activity.

These studies describe NMNAT as a synapse maintenance factor under normal activity conditions post assembly, when most of the BRP protein is present at the active zone and NMNAT protein is localized to the active zone area to carry out its maintenance function.

Two possibilities might explain this phenotype. Two, these BRP clusters are retrogradely transported from the active zone en route to degradation in the cell body.

Further work will be required to determine the direction of transport. In summary, this work has identified NMNAT as a chaperone for maintaining active zones, and for facilitating their maintenance during neuronal activity by binding to active zone structural protein BRP, adding NMNAT to the list of synaptic chaperones that are required to maintain functional and structural integrity in neurons Zang, HDAC6 is a Bruchpilot deacetylase that facilitates neurotransmitter release Presynaptic densities are specialized structures involved in synaptic vesicle tethering and neurotransmission; however, the mechanisms regulating their function remain understudied.

In Drosophila, Bruchpilot is a major constituent of the presynaptic density that tethers vesicles. Animals expressing TDP harboring pathogenic mutations show increased HDAC6 expression, decreased Bruchpilot acetylation, larger vesicle-tethering sites, and increased neurotransmission, defects similar to those seen upon expression of HDAC6 and opposite to hdac6 null mutants.

Consequently, reduced levels of HDAC6 or increased levels of ELP3, a Bruchpilot acetyltransferase, rescue the presynaptic density defects in TDPexpressing flies as well as the decreased adult locomotion.

This work identifies HDAC6 as a Bruchpilot deacetylase and indicates that regulating acetylation of a presynaptic release-site protein is critical for maintaining normal neurotransmission Miskiewicz, Acetylation of the C-terminal end of BRP results in more condensed T-bars, while deacetylation leads the protein to send excessive tentacles into the cytoplasm to contact more synaptic vesicles.

Similar to chromatin structure being regulated by electrostatic mechanisms at the level of histone acetylation, it is proposed that electrostatic interactions between acetylated and deacetylated lysines in individual BRP strands regulate presynaptic density structure and function Miskiewicz, However, hdac6 null mutant flies did not show overt changes in synaptic features other than T-bar morphology as gauged by electron microscopy, suggesting that axonal transport as a consequence of tubulin defects was not massively affected, although more subtle transport defects cannot be excluded Miskiewicz, BRP is a presynaptic density structural component important to cluster calcium channels at release sites while tethering synaptic vesicles at its C-terminal end.

Corroborating these results, mutations in the BRP C-terminal end brp nude cause defects in vesicle tethering and the maintenance of release during intense 60 Hz stimulation Hallermann et al.

Similarly brp-isoform mutations that leave calcium channel clustering intact but result in a much more condensed T-bar top show a smaller readily releasable vesicle pool, very similar to the defects when BRP is excessively acetylated.

The brp nude mutation shows somewhat less severe defects to maintain synaptic transmission, possibly because more vesicles still manage to tether in these mutants during stimulation compared to the conditions that result in strong shrinking of the T-bar top.

Nonetheless, the data indicate that in flies, BRP orchestrates efficient synaptic transmission during intense activity Miskiewicz, In flies, elp3 mutants also cause active zone deacetylation and more synaptic release.

Together with genetic interactions in fruit flies, the data suggest that decreased HDAC6 function and increased ELP3 function act antagonistically, both in flies and humans.

However, the target s on which these enzymes converge in humans remains to be discovered. It is in this perspective interesting to note that another active zone-associated protein, UNC13A, is implicated in ALS as well, but the pathomechanism of how UNC13A is implicated remains to be elucidated Miskiewicz, Quantitative super-resolution imaging of Bruchpilot distinguishes active zone states The precise molecular architecture of synaptic active zones AZs gives rise to different structural and functional AZ states that fundamentally shape chemical neurotransmission.

However, elucidating the nanoscopic protein arrangement at AZs is impeded by the diffraction-limited resolution of conventional light microscopy.

This study introduces new approaches to quantify endogenous protein organization at single-molecule resolution in situ with super-resolution imaging by direct stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy dSTORM.

Tests were performed for a quantitative relationship between CAZ ultrastructure and neurotransmitter release properties by engaging Drosophila mutants and electrophysiology.

The results indicate that the precise nanoscopic organization of Brp distinguishes different physiological AZ states and link functional diversification to a heretofore unrecognized neuronal gradient of the CAZ ultrastructure Ehmann, External and circadian inputs modulate synaptic protein expression in the visual system of Drosophila melanogaster In the visual system of Drosophila the retina photoreceptors form tetrad synapses with the first order interneurons, amacrine cells and glial cells in the first optic neuropil lamina , in order to transmit photic and visual information to the brain.

The abundance of all synaptic proteins was also changed in the lamina after locomotor and light stimulation. One hour locomotor stimulations at different time points in LD affected the pattern of the daily rhythm of synaptic proteins.

In turn, light stimulations in DD increased the level of all proteins studied. In the case of SYN, however, this effect was observed only after a short light pulse 15 min.

The abundance of BRP, SYN and DLG in the distal lamina, at the tetrad synapses, is regulated by light and a circadian clock while locomotor stimulation affects their daily pattern of expression.

The observed changes in the level of synaptic markers reflect the circadian plasticity of tetrad synapses regulated by the circadian clock and external inputs, both specific and unspecific for the visual system.

CK2-alpha regulates the transcription of BRP in Drosophila Development and plasticity of synapses are brought about by a complex interplay between various signaling pathways.

Typically, either changing the number of synapses or strengthening an existing synapse can lead to changes during synaptic plasticity.

Altering the machinery that governs the exocytosis of synaptic vesicles, which primarily fuse at specialized structures known as active zones on the presynaptic terminal, brings about these changes.

Although signaling pathways that regulate the synaptic plasticity from the postsynaptic compartments are well defined, the pathways that control these changes presynaptically are poorly described.

Interestingly, the transcripts of other active zone proteins that are important for function of active zones were also increased, while the transcripts from some other synaptic proteins were unchanged.

The Bruchpilot cytomatrix determines the size of the readily releasable pool of synaptic vesicles Synaptic vesicles SVs fuse at a specialized membrane domain called the active zone AZ , covered by a conserved cytomatrix.

How exactly cytomatrix components intersect with SV release remains insufficiently understood. This paper explores additional functions of the cytomatrix, starting with the biochemical identification of two BRP isoforms.

Both isoforms alternated in a circular array and are important for proper T-bar formation. Basal transmission is decreased in isoform-specific mutants, attributable to a reduction in the size of the readily releasable pool RRP of SVs.

A corresponding reduction was found in the number of SVs docked close to the remaining cytomatrix. An elaborate protein cytomatrix covering the AZ membrane is meant to facilitate and control the SV release process.

Quantitative analysis of neurotransmitter release has provided evidence that the number of SV release sites per AZ might be fixed.

Potentially, specific interactions between SVs and certain cytomatrix components might be involved. This study provides evidence that the BRP-based cytomatrix plays a role in defining the number of readily releasable SVs, possibly by offering morphological and molecular-determined 'release slots' Matkovic, Clearly, it remains a possibility that RIM-binding protein is a major scaffold determinant of the release slots and that e.

The brp -null phenotype can now be interpreted as a 'catastrophic event' in which a complete loss of this large scaffold protein leads to a severe decrease of cytomatrix avidity potentially mediated via a loss of RIM-binding protein below a critical level, resulting in a 'collapse' of the normal cytomatrix architecture.

The distal cytomatrix in brp nude is bare of SVs in EM, and SV replenishment is defective, resulting in short-term depression and not facilitation as in brp nulls.

Nevertheless, a basal release deficit was observed, which can be explained by a reduction in the size of the readily releasable vesicle pool, assigning an additional function to the BRP cytomatrix Matkovic, Release-ready SVs are meant to be molecularly and positionally primed for release.

This in turn is in agreement with BRP itself being important for defining the number of release-ready SVs determined by electrophysiology and EM Matkovic, Light microscopic inspection of an AB directed against the C terminus of BRP, common to both isoforms, with nm STED resolution, typically revealed approximately five dots arranged as a circle or regular pentagon.

Both isoforms were labelled individually, and it was found that 1 both isoforms seem to localize with their C termini similarly toward the distal edge of the cytomatrix and 2 both isoforms typically form an identical number of dots per AZ similar to the number of dots observed with the BRP C-Term AB recognizing both isoforms.

Thus, the BRP isoforms seem to be arranged in neighboring but not overlapping clusters, forming a circular array. Consistent with both BRP isoforms not overlapping in space, there was neither efficient co-IP between them nor did elimination of one isoform substantially interfere with the AZ localization of the respective other isoform.

Thus, BRP and seem to form discrete oligomers. However, beyond providing a discrete morphological architecture, the two BRP isoforms described in this study might harbor additional functionalities.

Future analysis will also have to address whether localization and regulation of additional cytomatrix and release components, such as RIM-binding protein, Unc family proteins, or RIM, contribute to the formation of release slots as well Matkovic, Ultimately, functional differences between individual synaptic sites must be defined by variances in their molecular organization.

Functional features of a synapse can be extracted electrophysiologically. Furthermore, AZ size seems to scale with the overall likelihood of release from a given AZ Holderith, A coupled increase in the size of the T-bar cytomatrix together with increasing SV release was previously observed at NMJs compensating for loss of the glutamate receptor subunit glurIIA.

Moreover, an increase in the number of release-ready SVs together with an increase in the amount of BRP was recently described as part of a homeostatic presynaptic response after pharmacological block of postsynaptic GluRIIA Weyhersmuller, In line with this scenario, it was recently shown that lack of acetylation of BRP in elp3 mutants led to an increase in the complexity of the AZ cytomatrix along with an increase in RRP size Miskiewicz, Furthermore, in vivo imaging of synaptic transmission with single synapse resolution revealed that the likelihood of release correlates with the amount of BRP present at an individual AZ Peled, This cytomatrix size-SV release scaling might be a general principle, as a correlation between the amount of SV exocytosis, measured by an optical assay, and the amount of the AZ protein Bassoon at individual synapses of cultured rat hippocampal neurons has also been observed Matz, The current results suggest that not only the mere size, but also the distinct architecture of the cytomatrix influence release at individual synapses through determining RRP size Matkovic, Unc controls active zone density and protein composition by downregulating ERK signaling Efficient synaptic transmission requires the apposition of neurotransmitter release sites opposite clusters of postsynaptic neurotransmitter receptors.

Transmitter is released at active zones, which are composed of a large complex of proteins necessary for synaptic development and function.

Many active zone proteins have been identified, but little is known of the mechanisms that ensure that each active zone receives the proper complement of proteins.

This study used a genetic analysis in Drosophila to demonstrate that the serine threonine kinase Unc see Atg1 acts in the presynaptic motoneuron to regulate the localization of the active zone protein Bruchpilot opposite to glutamate receptors at each synapse.

In the absence of Unc, many glutamate receptor clusters are unapposed to Bruchpilot, and ultrastructural analysis demonstrates that fewer active zones contain dense body T-bars.

In addition to the presence of these aberrant synapses, there is also a decrease in the density of all synapses. This decrease in synaptic density and abnormal active zone composition is associated with impaired evoked transmitter release.

In the unc mutant, increased ERK activity leads to the decrease in synaptic density and the absence of Bruchpilot from many synapses.

Hence, activated ERK negatively regulates synapse formation, resulting in either the absence of active zones or the formation of active zones without their proper complement of proteins.

The Uncdependent inhibition of ERK activity provides a potential mechanism for synapse-specific control of active zone protein composition and release probability Wairkar, A large-scale anatomical screen was performed to identify mutants where not every glutamate receptor cluster is apposed to Bruchpilot.

Such mutants were identified by the presence of glutamate receptor clusters unapposed to Bruchpilot puncta. In this screen, mutants were identified in unc Wairkar, Such misapposition could reflect either DGluRIII clusters unapposed to active zones, or receptor clusters apposed to abnormal active zones that do not contain Brp.

The ideal experiment to distinguish between these possibilities would be to stain for other presynaptic active zone proteins. Unfortunately the only other such protein that can be visualized in Drosophila is the calcium channel Cacophony, and since its localization depends on Brp this experiment is not be informative.

Nonetheless, two results strongly suggest that a subset of glutamate receptors is apposed to abnormal active zones. First, the decreased density of DGluRIII clusters observed via confocal microscopy approximates the decrease in active zone density observed via electron microscopy.

If many DGluRIII clusters were unapposed to active zones, then a more dramatic decrease in active zone density would be expected.

Second, ultrastructural analysis demonstrates a decrease in the proportion of active zones containing T-bars.

Brp is not necessary for the formation of active zones, but is required for the localization of T-bars to active zones. Therefore, it is concluded that Unc is required for the high fidelity of active zone assembly, ensuring that Brp is present at every active zone Wairkar, In addition to the presence of abnormal synapses in the unc mutant, there is also a decrease in the number and density of synapses.

It is speculated that the decrease in synaptic density and the presence of abnormal synapses may be related phenotypes that differ in severity.

In this view, Unc promotes synapse formation. In its absence, active zone assembly would be less efficient, resulting in either the formation of abnormal active zones missing crucial proteins such as Brp, or in more severe cases leading to complete failure of active zone assembly and, hence, the absence of a synapse.

The complete suppression of both the synaptic density and apposition phenotypes by mutation of the downstream target ERK is consistent with these phenotypes sharing an underlying mechanism.

As expected, this defect in the number and proper assembly of synapses leads to a dramatic decrease in synaptic efficacy Wairkar,
