The research group of Prof. Stephan Kröger examines synapse formation in the brain, at the neuromuscular junction and in muscle spindles. We investigate how synaptic connections are generated, maintained and how they change under pathological conditions. A key organizer of the synaptic specializations at the neuromuscular junction is the extracellular matrix protein agrin. Our work is based on the hypothesis that agrin has a similar role in the CNS and in muscle spindles, as it has at the neuromuscular junction.
