BACKGROUND Glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) has been linked to prodepressant-like effects in rodents. However, the roles of GSK-3β and the hippocampal dentate gyrus in regulating these behavioral effects remain unclear. METHODS A lentiviral vector was utilized to site-specifically express GSK-3β constitutively in the hippocampal DG in a mouse model of(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that dysregulation of micro (mi)RNAs is associated with the etiology of various neuropsychiatric disorders, including depression and schizophrenia. Cerebralcare Granule® (CG) is a Chinese herbal medicine, which has been reported to have an ameliorative effect on brain injury by attenuating blood‑brain barrier disruption(More)
BACKGROUND The Protein tyrosine phosphatase receptor type R (PTPRR), which regulates the dephosphorylation of the downstream mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) steering cell proliferation, apoptosis and synaptic plasticity, may be involved in the pathogenesis of depression. METHODS Lentiviral vectors were utilized to express the PTPRR constitutively(More)
