N-methyl-D-aspartic acid receptor-dependent long term potentiation (LTP), a model of memory formation, requires Ca2+·calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (αCaMKII) activity and Thr286 autophosphorylation via both global and local Ca2+ signaling, but the mechanisms of signal transduction are not understood. We tested the hypothesis that the Ca2+-binding(More)
The neuroplastins np65 and np55 are neuronal and synapse-enriched immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily cell adhesion molecules that contain 3 and 2 Ig domains, respectively. Np65 is neuron specific whereas np55 is expressed in many tissues. They are multifunctional proteins whose physiological roles are defined by the partner proteins they bind to and the(More)
