Bye, bye 2019: It was a great year!

I neglected updating the website over last months. It was really busy year and here are only few lab events to share now. Better late than never!





Lab Outing at the Christmas Market in Erlangen; December 2019

New paper online!

New paper of our collaborators Martin Heine and David Holcman about splice variants of Cav2.1, their molelcualr dynamics and effect on neurotransmission is just published in Neuron. Congratulations Martin and David, well done! Thanks, that we could contribute to this nice study!

Heck et al., 2019

Presynaptic CaV2.1 channels are confined in nanodomains, for which size and dwell time are modulated by network activity. Heck et al. show that changing the affinity to scaffold proteins by alternative splicing of CaV2.1 directly affects short-term plasticity.
