Organelle Distribution and Trafficking in Caenorhabditis Elegans Neurons.

Zahler, Sebastian H.

Abstract: The neuron is the basic unit of the nervous system and is composed of a cell body, dendrites, and a long axon. Neurons send and receive signals at synapses located at the terminus of axons and at various points throughout the dendritic arbor, and those signals are then transmitted through the dendrites and axons. Because most proteins are synthesized in the cell body, proper synaptic tra... read more
