Although depression is the most common mood disorder, only one third of patients are treated with success. Finding new targets, new drugs, and also new drug intake way are the main challenges in the depression field. Several years ago, we identified a new target with the TWIK-related potassium channel-1 (TREK-1) potassium channel, and more recently, we have(More)
Inhibition of the potassium channels TREK-1 by spadin (SPA) is currently thought to be a promising therapeutic target for the treatment of depression. Since these channels are expressed in pancreatic β-cells, we investigated their role in the control of insulin secretion and glucose homeostasis. In this study, we confirmed the expression of TREK-1 channels(More)
The neuropeptide neurotensin (NT) elicits numerous pharmacological effects through three different receptors (NTSR1, NTSR2, and NTSR3 also called sortilin). Pharmacological approaches and generation of NTSR1 and NTSR2-deficient mice allowed to determine the NT-induced antipsychotic like behavior, the inhibitory of weak fear memory and the nociceptive(More)
