In comparison, the genomic length of activitydependent immediate early genes whose RNA expression increases rapidly after synaptic stimulation is typically short. 5 kb. , 2004), local translational regulation may provide a mechanism for the synapsespecificity that is a characteristic feature of LTP and would be important for its putative ability to store associative memory (Bliss and Collingridge, 1993). , 2004).

2002), had no effect on long-term memory retention at a dose that completely prevented learning when injected prior to training. A critical question concerning the effect of PKMz inhibition of memory retention is whether ZIP disrupts information retrieval or information storage. One way to distinguish between these 36 possibilities is to inject ZIP after long-term memory has been established, wait for the drug to be eliminated, and then test whether the memory returns. If the conditioned behavior returns, this would indicate an effect on information retrieval; if the memory were persistently eliminated, this would suggest an effect on storage.
