Haloperidol treatment induces tissue- and sex-specific changes in DNA methylation: a control study using rats
BackgroundWe previously found that there is a subtle difference in the global methylation state of blood leukocyte DNA between male subjects with and without schizophrenia. The aim of the currentExpand
Effects of repeated stress on expression of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and IL-6 receptor mRNAs in rat hypothalamus and midbrain.
We examined the effects of single and repeated stress on the expression of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and IL-6 receptor (IL-6R) mRNAs in the rat midbrain and hypothalamus using reverseExpand
Synaptotagmin XI as a candidate gene for susceptibility to schizophrenia
Synaptotagmin XI (Syt11) is a member of the synaptotagmin family, which is localized in cells either in synaptic vesicles or the cellular membrane, and is known to act as a calcium sensor. The Syt11Expand
Human endogenous retroviruses with transcriptional potential in the brain
AbstractGenetic studies of neuropsychiatric disorders have often produced conflicting results, which might partly result from the involvement of epigenetic modifications. We intended to explore theExpand
Effects of odorants on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and interleukin-6 (IL-6) and IL-6 receptor mRNA expression in rat hypothalamus after restraint stress.
We recently reported that stress alters interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-6 receptor (IL-6R) mRNA levels in the hypothalamus. Odorants are reported to exert anti-stress effects. The aim of our study was toExpand
Late-onset depression: can EEG abnormalities help in clinical sub-typing?
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency of EEG abnormalities indicative of mild cerebrovascular dysfunction in patients with late-onset depression and to correlate theseExpand
Effects of single and repeated prolonged stress on mu-opioid receptor mRNA expression in rat gross hypothalamic and midbrain homogenates
This study tested the hypothesis that stress-induced opioid peptides may have stimulative and inhibitive influence on mu opioid receptor (MOR) mRNA expression and hypothalamus. Several studies haveExpand
Effects of single and repeated stresses on the expression of mRNA for alpha1-adrenoceptors in the rat hypothalamus and midbrain.
We examined the effects of single or repeated stress on the expression of mRNA for alpha1-adrenoceptors in the rat hypothalamus and midbrain using the reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reactionExpand
Tissue specificity of methylation and expression of human genes coding for neuropeptides and their receptors, and of a human endogenous retrovirus K family
AbstractThe purpose of the present study was to understand the tissue specificity of DNA methylation and the relationship between methylation and expression of genes with essential roles inExpand
Decreased expression of the mRNA for somatostatin in the periventricular nucleus of depression-model rats.
Expression of the mRNA for somatostatin (SRIF) in the periventricular nucleus (PeN), the level of SRIF in the stalk-median eminence (SME) and the concentration of growth hormone (GH) in the plasmaExpand
