Dentate gyrus granule cellAxon terminalKainate.It has been shown that activation of these receptors could facilitate transmitter release. Their activation is very fast (<10 ms) and lasts for seconds, and could contribute to the short-term plasticity characteristics of mossy fiber synapses (Schmitz D et al, 2001281 ).
