Long-term potentiation (LTP) is thought to be critically involved not only in learning and memory, but also during the activity-dependent developmental phases of neural circuit formation and refinement. Whether the mechanisms underlying LTP change during this phase of postnatal development, however, is unknown. We report here that, unlike LTP in the more mature CA1 region of the hippocampus, LTP in neonatal rodent hippocampus (<9 postnatal days, <P9) requires cyclic AMP–dependent protein kinase… Expand
Parallel kinase cascades are involved in the induction of LTP at hippocampal CA1 synapses
TLDR
Experiments reveal the existence of two parallel kinase pathways, one involving CaMKII and the other PKA and PKC, either of which can fully support the induction of LTP, at this stage of development. Expand
Neonatal isolation accelerates the developmental switch in the signalling cascades for long‐term potentiation induction
TLDR
The results suggest a novel role for CRF in regulating early developmental events in the hippocampus, and indicate that, although maternal deprivation is stressful for the neonate, appropriate neonatal isolation can serve to promote an endocrine state that fosters the rate of maturation of the signalling cascades underlying the induction of LTP in the developing hippocampus.

Regulation of hippocampus-dependent memory by cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase.
TLDR
Evidence that PKA is required for hippocampus-dependent memory in mammals is reviewed, and some of the proteins that have been implicated as targets of PKA are highlighted. Expand
Multiple, Developmentally Regulated Expression Mechanisms of Long-Term Potentiation at CA1 Synapses
TLDR
It is suggested that a single class of synapse uses a number of different molecular mechanisms to produce long-term changes in synaptic strength, similar to that used for LTP at CA1 synapses that are developmentally regulated. Expand
Mechanisms underlying induction of LTP-associated changes in short-term dynamics of transmission at immature synapses
TLDR
During the first postnatal week, a subset of CA3-CA1 synapses express postsynaptically induced LTP that is tightly associated with a robust decrease in synaptic facilitation, consistent with an increase in release probability (P(r). Expand
AMPA silencing is a prerequisite for developmental long-term potentiation in the hippocampal CA1 region.
TLDR
Developmental LTP, by stabilization of AMPA-labile synapses, thus seems adapted to select synaptic connections to the growing synaptic network and may then create functionally tightly connected cell assemblies within this network. Expand
Reversal of Synaptic Memory by Ca2+/Calmodulin-Dependent Protein Kinase II Inhibitor
TLDR
This is the first procedure that can reverse LTP by chemical means and suggests that a component of synaptic memory is attributable to CaMKII, which is involved in controlling basal synaptic strength, perhaps as a result of LTP that occurred in vivo. Expand
Developmental Switch in Synaptic Mechanisms of Hippocampal Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor-Dependent Long-Term Depression
TLDR
Developmental changes in long-term depression mediated by group 1 metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) and dendritic protein synthesis in hippocampal CA1 slices are identified and mGluR-LTD is identified, suggesting a postsynaptic mechanism of expression. Expand
Presynaptic Spike Timing-Dependent Long-Term Depression in the Mouse Hippocampus
TLDR
The results show that CA3-CA1 synapses display both NMDA receptor-dependent t-LTP and t- lTD during development and identify a presynaptic form of hippocampal t- LTD similar to that previously described at neocortical synapses during development. Expand
RCAN1 Regulates Bidirectional Synaptic Plasticity
TLDR
It is shown that phosphorylation of the endogenous regulator-of-calcineurin (RCAN1) by GSK3β underlies calcineur in activation and is a necessary event for LTD induction, while phosphorylated of RCAN1 at a PKA site blocks calcineURin activity, thereby allowing LTP induction. Expand

The molecular basis of CaMKII function in synaptic and behavioural memory
TLDR
Genetic mutations that prevent persistent activation of CaMKII block LTP, experience-dependent plasticity and behavioural memory, making this kinase a leading candidate in the search for the molecular basis of memory. Expand

TLDR
Observations indicate that in early LTP the cAMP signaling pathway, instead of transmitting signals for the generation of LTP, gates LTP through postsynaptic protein phosphatases. Expand
