ASK about this slide... Motor neurons stabilize postsynaptic differentiation" Expression of agrin" take protein elements of motor neuron redistributes ach receptors but and test them out on the muscles. see also increases expression of the that agrin protein is important in inducing ones near by and decreases the ach receptor production in muscle ones far away increases expression of the why cluster ach receptors? receptor in nearby nuclei put them together so creates a synapse...don't want receptors wasted in areas where no synapses Purify the...
