    Recent studies have explored the indispensable roles of Cdk5 in presynapse. Presynapse is the structure in which neurotransmitter-containing synaptic vesicles are fused to the synaptic membrane and recycled to internal compartments via exocytosis and endocytosis, respectively. Cdk5 is involved in the regulation of the exocytosis and endocytosis of synaptic vesicles.
