Exposure to chronic stress is thought to play an important role in the etiology of depression. In this disorder, dopaminergic dysfunction in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) is thought to be involved. Indeed, chronic stress reduces dopaminergic transmission in the rat PFC or induces a behaviorally depressive state. However, a relationship between the reduced(More)
Previous studies have shown D2-like dopamine receptor involvement in the regulation of phospholipid methylation (PLM), while others have documented impaired methionine and folate metabolism in schizophrenia. Utilizing [14C]formate labeling in cultured neuroblastoma cell lines, we now show that D4 dopamine receptors (D4R) mediate the stimulatory effect of(More)
The effect of hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) was examined using MSG mice, which are an animal model of obesity, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Nineteen MSG male mice were divided into HBOT treated and control groups at 12 weeks of ages. The HBOT group was treated with hyperbaric oxygen from 12 to 14 weeks (first phase)(More)
