We examined the morphological and functional consequences of deleting all synapsin isoforms at the calyx of Held synapse. Our results suggest that in wild-type synapses, only a small fraction of the synapsin-dependent reserve pool of vesicles enters the readily releasable pool. Synapsins are required for normal synaptic vesicle biogenesis, trafficking and immobilization of synaptic vesicles, yet they are not essential for sustained high-frequency synaptic transmission at the calyx terminal.
