We demonstrate that multiple promoters and alternate splicing regulate expression of the human CRH receptor type 2 (CRHR2) gene. We show that flanking regions to the first exons drive promoter activity in both endogenously and nonendogenously expressing cell lines. Putative promoter elements have been identified that are conserved between species, including(More)
BACKGROUND There is a robust empirical evidence base supporting the acute efficacy of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) for severe and treatment resistant depression. However, a major limitation, probably contributing to its declining use, is that ECT is associated with impairment in cognition, notably in anterograde and retrograde memory and executive(More)
BACKGROUND The use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is limited by concerns about its cognitive adverse effects. Preliminary evidence suggests that administering the glutamate antagonist ketamine with ECT might alleviate cognitive adverse effects and accelerate symptomatic improvement; we tested this in a randomised trial of low-dose ketamine.
