SYNAPTIC PLASTICITY The Substrate for Protein Kinase C in LTD
Cerebellar long-term depression (LTD) requires protein kinase C (PKC)-regulated interactions between glutamate receptor subunit GluR2 and other postsynaptic proteins. Chung et al. found that LTD could not be elicited in cultured Purkinje cells from mice that were deficient in GluR2. LTD in cells from these mice could be rescued with GluR2, but not by mutant GluR2 lacking its PKC phosphorylation site.
