Seipin, an ER protein with high-level expression in brain, is implicated in a broad spectrum of motoneuron diseases. Seipin specifically regulates excitatory postsynaptic currents (EPSCs) as knockdown (KD) of Seipin results in significantly reduced AMPA receptor (AMPA-R)-mediated currents. Moreover, Seipin KD causes decreased total and surface AMPA-R levels. We conclude that Seipin regulates synaptic transmission through a postsynaptic mechanism.
