AbstractWe had described a muscarinic-mediated long-term synaptic enhancement at Schaffer collateral synapses caused by the insertion of AMPARs in spines of rat hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons that requires Ca2+ release from IP3-sensitive stores (Fernández de Sevilla et al., 2008). We now show that this AMPA-mediated LTPIP3 is precisely matched by an amplification of NMDAR-mediated transmission. The enhanced AMPAR transmission involves SNARE protein activity and CaMKII activation. The amplification of NMDA transmission requires combined CaMKII, PKC, and SRC kinase activity without detectable surface incorporation of NMDARs, suggesting that changes in receptor properties mediate this process. The enhanced AMPAR- and NMDAR-mediated transmission markedly reduce the induction threshold of >Hebbian> LTP. We conclude that both modes of glutamatergic synaptic potentiation may play a critical functional role in the regulation of the learning machinery of the brain by adding flexibility to the demands of the hippocampal network.
