A critical role of mitochondria in BDNF-associated synaptic plasticity after one-week vortioxetine treatment
(Oxford Univ Press, 2018)
Background Preclinical studies have indicated that antidepressant effect of vortioxetine involves increased synaptic plasticity and promotion of spine maturation. Mitochondria dysfunction may contribute to the pathophysiological ...
Erythropoietin prevents the effect of chronic restraint stress on the number of hippocampal CA3c dendritic terminals-relation to expression of genes involved in synaptic plasticity, angiogenesis, inflammation, and oxidative stress in male rats
Stress-induced allostatic load affects a variety of biological processes including synaptic plasticity, angiogenesis, oxidative stress, and inflammation in the brain, especially in the hippocampus. Erythropoietin (EPO) is ...
Maternal high-fat diet programs offspring emotional behavior in adulthood
Prenatal exposure to high-fat diet (HFD) might predispose offspring to develop metabolic and mental disorders later in life. Insight into the molecular and behavioral consequences of maternal HFD on offspring is sparse but ...
The microbial metabolite indole-3-propionic acid improves glucose metabolism in rats, but does not affect behaviour
(Taylor & Francis, 2018)
Context: We have previously shown that an antidepressant-like effect of probiotics in rats was associated with a higher plasma level of the microbial tryptophan metabolite indole-3-propionic acid (IPA). Objective: We ...
