Disruption of Glutamate Receptor-Interacting Protein in Nucleus Accumbens Enhances Vulnerability to Cocaine Relapse


Trafficking and stabilization of AMPA receptors at synapses in response to cocaine exposure is thought to be critical for expression of cocaine addiction and relapse. Glutamate receptor-interacting protein (GRIP) is a neuronal scaffolding protein that stabilizes GluA2 AMPARs at synapses but its role in cocaine addiction has not been examined. The current… (More)
