Posttranslational modifications play crucial roles in synaptic plasticity and memory formation. The important role of histone acetylation is well established in these processes. However, activity-dependent regulation of acetylation of non-histone proteins is not well understood. We previously showed that α-tubulin is acetylated in an activity-dependent manner. Here, we show that cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (CDK5) plays an important role in α-tubulin acetylation induced by KCl depolarization or N-methyl-D-aspartate stimulation of the hippocampal slices. In addition, KCl depolarization inhibits the activity of SIRT2, an α-tubulin deacetylase. The inhibitory effect of KCl on SIRT2 activity requires CDK5 activity. Furthermore, α-tubulin acetylation is enhanced by memory training in object recognition task. These results suggest that memory formation may involve α-tubulin acetylation
