Kainate receptors are composed of several subunits and splice variants, but the relevance of this diversity is still not well understood. The subunits and splice variants show great divergence in their C-terminal cytoplasmic tail region, which has been identified as a region of interaction with a number of protein partners. Differential trafficking of kainate receptors to neuronal compartments is likely to rely on interactions with distinct subsets of protein partners. This review summarizes our knowledge of the regulation of trafficking of kainate receptors and focuses on the identification and characterization of functions of interacting partners.
