Cted with the concentration of ActD used in this work. Hence, we have shown that the rise in GluN2A in the slices seems to mainly depend on translation, while at present we cannot discard some transcriptional contribution. On the other hand, GluN1 increase would depend on both transcription and translation mechanisms. Therefore, NMDAR subunits increase after LTP induction in hippocampal slices requires protein synthesis. Although this increase in translation -and may be in transcription- might be interpreted as a consequence nstead of a cause- of the subunits synaptic recruitment, the levels remained significantly higher than controls, suggesting that, at least for a while, a new steady state could have been reached. Our results indicate that translation of already transcribed mRNAs was necessary. Although gene expression appeared not to be required for LTP induction and expression over at least 70 minutes (E-LTP?) [14,54], with the actual data we could not discard the contribution of some remaining transcription during ActD perfusion. Since a GluN1 pool is retained in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) [55,56], NMDAR could still increase at the surface without de novo expression of GluN1, whenever GluN2 subunits are available [12]. Changes in NMDAR would be t least partiallysupported by GluN1 present in ER and translation of GluN2A from already transcribed mRNAs [21,55]. In silico 56-59-7 biological activity analysis of GluN2A mRNA revealed that there are 6 upstream open reading frames (uORFs) present in glun2A 59UTR [57]. This is a known regulatory mechanism of translation which might be Hesperidin chemical information responsible for GluN2A mRNA ordinary translation at a slow rate in nonactive neurons and of its translation enhancement after certain synaptic stimulus (when only specific plasticity-related mRNAs would be translated).5. NMDAR Subunits Undergo Similar Changes in the Experimental Models AnalyzedIn the three models used, GluN1 and GluN2A increased after 30 and before 70 minutes following induction of plasticity or exposure to the OF, whereas no changes were observed in GluN2B. This happened in vivo, in adult rats, and in vitro both in hippocampal slices of adults and in mature cultures of hippocampal neurons. Although these results are similar, further investigation is required to reveal if the mechanisms involved in each case reflect related processes and to find out whether they are causally related with 15857111 synaptic plasticity, learning and memory. Changes in NMDAR subunits were first reported during early post-natal development in mammals [4,51,58], when NMDAR subunit expression switches from GluN2B-containing receptors to GluN2A-receptors predominance [21]. These changes are slowly developed over the course of days and are dependent on transcription, translation and activity [12]. In rat hippocampal slices different activity-dependent mechanisms regulate synaptic delivery of each NMDAR subunit. In general, activity would lead to an increase in GluN2A and a decrease in GluN2B synaptic membrane expression, as was assessed by changes of currents kinetic in voltage-clamp recordings in organotypic cultures or inNMDAR Subunits Change after OF Exposure and LTPfresh slices [10,12,14,24,59]. These increases in GluN2A/GluN2B ratio occured very quickly and seemed to be independent of either protein synthesis or gene expression [10,24]. GluN2B-NMDARs appear to be necessary for LTP induction, with higher affinity for Calcium/Calmodulin-Dependent Protein Kinase II (CaMKII) than GluN2A [60] and h.Cted with the concentration of ActD used in this work.
