Description Contents Teacher Resources
 
Dr. David Goodsell’s captivating water color poster will lead your students through the molecular interactions found at neuromuscular synapse vesicles filled with acetylcholine, to a final breakdown of excess neurotransmitters.

Goodsell, PhD, scientist, author and artist of all things small, creates cellular landscapes that accurately illustrate the size, shape, and distribution of proteins in their natural environment of the cell. These unique water color images connect the molecular world, inferred by X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy, with the cellular world, observed by light and electron microscopy.

The Neuromuscular Synapse Poster© illustrates the connection between a nerve cell and a muscle, where vesicles filled with the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, fuse with the membrane of the pre-synaptic axon. Following vesicle fusion, the acetylcholine diffuses across the synaptic space to bind to acetylcholine receptors found in the membrane of the muscle cell. Acetylcholinesterase is entangled in the synaptic space, where it breaks down excess neurotransmitter.
