SynapsePostsynapseEndosomeCell junctionRecycling endosomePostsynaptic endosomePostsynaptic recycling endosome


A recycling endosome of the postsynapse. It is involved in recycling of neurotransmitter receptors to the postsynaptic membrane and serves as intracellular reserve pools of neurotransmitter receptors. In some cases at least, this recycling is activated by postsynaptic signalling and so can play a role in long term potentiation.
