Possible reasons for (transient) PPRV RNA persistence are infection of neurons followed by transsynaptic spread (13).
According to this theory, glaucoma is a result of brain insulin resistance or central insulin signaling impairment, triggering the development of transsynaptic neurodegeneration.

Despite evidence supporting tau spreading through a transsynaptic or transneuronal propagation pathway, recent work has challenged this view.[73] AAV-mediated human tau (h-tau) expression in neurons by injection into the medial EC in 4-month-old mice produces hyperphosphorylated human tau, where tau oligomers can propagate to the DG granule cell layer at 28 days postinjection.
The viral glycoprotein is essential for transsynaptic spreading by using cell nicotinic acetylcholine receptors at the neuromuscular junctions (15).
However, as hydroxyamphetamine is usually not readily available and testing is not reliable in children due to possible transsynaptic degeneration [5], localizing tests have widely been replaced by magnetic resonance imaging of the head, neck, and upper chest [6].

Red light produces pupil constriction mediated by cone input via transsynaptic activation of melanopsin-expressing retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), whereas blue light leads to pupil constriction mediated primarily by direct photoactivation of ipRGCs.
Using transsynaptic tracing techniques and donor cell label, synaptic connections between fetal retinal sheet transplants and the host retina have been previously reported [72-74].
Neuroligins, a prototypical interaction partner of neurexins, are expressed predominantly at the postsynaptic terminal; coupling to presynaptic neurexins forms transsynaptic complexes to participate in the formation, differentiation, maturation, and plasticity of functional synapses [3-5].
