A proteolipid complex which supports Ca2+-dependent, low affinity, flash-like, neurotransmitter release... and several other cellular functions.

1. The cholinergic mediatophore: functional isolation and cloning

5. Mediatophore, transmitter release and fleeting presynaptic particles

2. Mediatophore localisation in the presynaptic membrane

6. Synaptic vesicles, SNARE proteins, and synaptotagmin in the dynamics of calcium extrusion

3. Mediatophore supports quantal transmitter release

7. Mediatophore and the vesicular hypothesis. New paradigms for rapid neurotransmitter release and exocytosis.

4. A multifunction proteolipid family. Other mediatophores for other neurotransmitters ?
