Calcium/Calmodulin-Dependent Protein Kinase II Mediates Group I Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor-Dependent Protein Synthesis and Long-Term Depression in Rat Hippocampus

Mockett, Bruce; Guevrement, Diane; Wutte, Magdalena; Hulme, Sarah; Williams, Joanna; Abraham, Wickliffe C


Activation of Group I metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) in rat hippocampus induces a form of long-term depression (LTD) that is dependent on protein synthesis. However, the intracellular mechanisms leading to the initiation of protein synthesis and expression of LTD after mGluR activation are only partially understood. We investigated the role of several pathways linked to mGluR activation, translation initiation, and induction of LTD. We found that Group I mGluR-dependent protein...[Show more]
