In the hippocampus, synaptic proteins, as studied so far, have been shown to be upregulated by 17β-estradiol, while inhibition of local estradiol synthesis consistently downregulates them. As an exception to this rule, we have previously shown that synaptopodin, an actin-associated postsynaptic protein, is downregulated in response to estradiol in(More)
Locally synthesized estradiol plays an important role in synaptic plasticity in the hippocampus. We have previously shown that in hippocampal neurons, activity of the enzyme aromatase, which converts testosterone into estradiol, is reduced via Ca2+ -dependent phosphorylation. Synaptopodin is a highly estrogen responsive protein, and it has been shown that(More)
