Mechanism of tetrabenazine inhibition

VMAT2 is the only transporter that transports dopamine from the cytoplasm into synaptic vesicles for storage and eventual release. By inhibiting VMAT2, dopamine will not be packaged into vesicles and hence, unable to travel across the synaptic cleft. Tetrabenazine also binds and inhibit to dopamine receptors. This suppresses the amount of dopamine binding to the dopamine receptor located at the post synaptic nerve terminal. Thus, the neurones will not be stimulated and no cascade for the inducement of kinetic movements will be triggered.

Assessment

+ Figure relavent to group project. + Meets student drawn criteria. + Copyright, citation and student disclaimer included. + You provide further information in the figure legend, therefore some peer teaching component. - The most serious problem with this image is that it is of such poor quality that any of the positive assessment items above are discounted by this. You should have made an effort to upload a far clearer version.
