By contrast, the second process, retrieval (accessing the coded experience), is regulated by synaptic strength and glutamate receptor trafficking at the time that the memory is accessed [58, 62, 63] and does not require protein translation or gene transcription [39, 58].

Due to its ability to bind to numerous ligands, LRP1 associates with a chaperone termed the receptor-associated protein (RAP) which prevents premature ligand binding during receptor trafficking from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to the Golgi.
Previous research has suggested that alterations caused by specific mutations depend on the location of the substituted amino acid in one of the critical regions for ligand binding, receptor trafficking, and signal transmission but not on the extend of the defect (13).
To accomplish this function Sortilin is endowed with an ectodomain that binds a great variety of cargo proteins, and a cytosolic domain that recruits adaptor proteins to direct the receptor trafficking activities.
In excitatory receptor trafficking, insulin causes the internalization of AMPA receptors, resulting in long-term depression of excitatory synaptic transmission crucial for the storage of information in the brain [38, 39].
