2003) have addressed these issues by monitoring functional and presynaptic structural changes continuously during LTF using time-lapse confocal imaging of individual presynaptic varicosities of sensory neurons labeled with three fluorescent markers: the whole cell marker Alexa-594 and two presynaptic marker proteins--synaptophysin-eGFP, which monitors changes in the distribution of synaptic vesicles
within individual varicosities, and synapto-PHluorin, a monitor of active transmitter release sites (Miesenbock et al.

Many synaptic vesicle
proteins, including synaptophysin, exist in multiple isoforms.
Synaptic transmission is primarily based on the regulated release of neurotransmitter from synaptic vesicles
Synapsins are a group of neuronal-specific phosphoproteins that are important regulators of synaptic vesicle
trafficing in presynaptic terminals (12).
The Neuron study looked at proteins involved in one phase of the recovery process, the separating and pinching off of the membrane of the synaptic vesicle
from the membrane of the neuronal cell.

Therefore, we speculate that propofol might induce probability of synaptic vesicle

It was not until 2002 that the ATP-independence of synaptic vesicle
release was also confirmed (Heidelberger et al.
