Diagram of AMPA Receptors in the Synapse

18 Nov 2019

In the membrane outside the synapse, the AMPA receptor subunit concentrations are low; subunits mainly exist as individuals or form pairs. Within the synapse, the AMPA receptor subunit concentrations are high, and tetramers form. Tetramer lifetimes are about 0.2 seconds.
