Stargazin is a member of the transmembrane AMPAR regulatory proteins (TARP) family and is involved in glutamate receptor trafficking. It has been recently demonstrated that the interaction between stargazin and AMPA receptors is critical for the correct localization of the receptors at the synapse. Phosphorylation of the stargazin protein at Thr 321 by Protein Kinase A regulates its interaction with PSD-95 and synaptic targeting of AMPA receptors.
