Localization of Acetylcholine Receptors During Synaptogenesis in Retina
Working with neuroreceptors synthesized in chick embryo retina before synapses appear, this article presents findings that
dissociated retina cells have the ability to synthesize receptors and extend neurites from cell bodies. These cultured retina
cells were extremely valuable to researchers, as in subsequent studies they were used as a model system for explaining the
process of synapse formations.
