When we study the structure of the chemical synapse, by default we come across Axo-dendritic synapse consisting of various cell adhesion molecules/receptors etc. (like this). However, I was particularly interested in dendro-axonic synapses. Does the picture of synapse applies to every type of synapse or are we only aware of the axodendritic synapse? I mean, do the same cell adhesion or signalling molecules also present in dendro-axonic synapse? If yes, What could be their possible influence on passing action potential? I went through literature, but I couldn't find any focusing on subcellular structure and distribution at dendro-axonic synapses.
