Phosphorylation of Non-Histone Acid-Extractable Nuclear Proteins (NAEP) from Brain
The effect of a short training experience on the phosphorylation of acid-extractable proteins from the nuclei of rat brain cells has been studied. It appears that learning an avoidance conditioning task has a permanent biochemical or physiological effect on the rat so that increased incorporation of phosphate into brain NAEP is triggered by subtle reminders which have not yet been determined.
