Chronic methamphetamine results in glutamate release and synaptic plasticity, likely involving AMPA receptors. Metabotropic glutamate receptor group 1 subtype 5 (mGlu5) activates striatal-enriched tyrosine phosphatase isoform 61 (STEP61) to internalize AMPARs. We reveal that repeated methamphetamine increased cell surface AMPAR subunits and decreased STEP61 levels in rat cortex; this change was not seen after mGlu5 antagonist treatment.
