In hippocampal mossy fiber synapses, which show facilitation during repetitive activity, the rates of synaptic vesicle tethering and priming were essentially similar to those at the calyx of Held.
Maintenance of the proper mossy fiber pathway is necessary for normal hippocampal function throughout life as granule cells from the DG are continuously born and incorporated into the hippocampal network.
Calakos, "Acute in vivo genetic rescue demonstrates that phosphorylation of RIM1[alpha] serine 413 is not required for mossy fiber long-term potentiation," Journal of Neuroscience, vol.
Electrophysiology recording in the mossy fiber-CA3 region suggested that there was a higher amount of neurotransmitter release from mossy fiber to CA3.
We could observe the sprouting of mossy fibers in both the epileptic dentate gyrus and CA2 region.
through mossy fibers. Mossy fibers send excitatory glutamatergic outputs to granule neurons, which in turn transmit excitatory synaptic information to Purkinje cells (Fig.
FLX treatment was also found to reduce mossy fiber synaptic facilitation to juvenile levels [5].
An apparent counterexample to the idea that long-term presynaptic changes depend on retrograde signals, however, is non-NMDA receptor-dependent LTP of the mossy fiber [right arrow] CA3 pyramidal cell synapse.
A selective antagonist for GluK1-containing kainate receptors, LY382884, blocks the induction of mossy fiber LTP [173,174], but conflictingly, mossy fiber LTP can be elicited in the presence of the AMPA/kainate receptor antagonist, CNQX [175, 176].

Hippocampus analyses revealed disturbed cell firing, depressed cell responses to electric stimulation, dwindling numbers of synapses, and an expansion of a class of cells called mossy fibers that may disrupt overall hippocampus function.
