Antidepressant-like effects of standardized gypenosides: involvement of brain-derived neurotrophic factor signaling in hippocampus
This study demonstrates that gypenosides exhibit antidepressant-like effects in mice, which may be mediated by activation of the BDNF-ERK/Akt signaling pathway in the hippocampus.
Roles of BDNF/TrkB Signaling Pathway in Anti-Depressant Effect of Vortioxetine
Vortioxetine significantly shortened the immobility time of the depressive mice in forced swim test without affecting the locomotor activity of the mice in open fields, suggesting the antidepressant effect of against depression in mice.
Putative Role of Monoaminergic Systems in Antidepressant and Anxiolytic Effects of Naringin in Mice: An Interaction Study with Receptor Antagonists
The findings suggest that the antidepressant-like activity exhibited by naringin might be mediated via interactions with 5-HTergic, noradrenergic, and dopaminergic receptors, while the anxiolytic effect might involve interaction with both 5- HTergic and noradreceptor receptors.
Brain‐derived Neurotrophic Factor Signaling Mediates the Antidepressant‐like Effect of the Total Flavonoids of Alpiniae Oxyphyllae Fructus in Chronic Unpredictable Mild Stress Mice
Results demonstrated that AOF might exert antidepressant‐like effects by targeting TrkB receptor‐mediated pERK/pCREB/BDNF signal systems, which could help to identify the AOF receptor.
Puerarin ameliorated the behavioral deficits induced by chronic stress in rats
Repeated administration of puerarin alleviated the behavioral deficits induced by chronic stress which was associated with the biosynthesis of neurosteroids, normalization of serotonergic system and preventing HPA axis dysfunction.
BDNF-ERK-CREB signalling mediates the role of miR-132 in the regulation of the effects of oleanolic acid in male mice.
Oleanolic acid induces the upregulation of miR-132, which serves as an important regulator of neurotrophic actions, mainly through the activation of the hippocampal BDNF-ERK-CREB signalling pathways.


Brain-derived neurotrophic factor signalling mediates antidepressant effects of lamotrigine.
It is shown that in rats subjected to chronic unpredictable stress, chronic administration of 30 mg/kg lamotrigine ameliorates behavioural deficits of stressed rats in both sucrose preference test (SPT) and novelty-suppressed feeding test (NSFT).
Antidepressant-like behavioral, neurochemical and neuroendocrine effects of naringenin in the mouse repeated tail suspension test
Involvement of monoaminergic system in the antidepressant-like effect of the flavonoid naringenin in mice
Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor Produces Antidepressant Effects in Behavioral Models of Depression
The hypothesis that BDNF in the hippocampus produces an antidepressant effect in behavioral models of depression, the learned helplessness (LH) and forced swim test (FST) paradigms is tested and provides further support for the hypothesis thatBDNF contributes to the therapeutic action of antidepressant treatment.
Fuzi polysaccharide-1 produces antidepressant-like effects in mice.
The findings suggest that FPS could be developed as a putative antidepressant with a rapid onset of action, suggesting that the neurogenic and antidepressant effects of FPS may involve BDNF signalling.
BDNF overexpression in mouse hippocampal astrocytes promotes local neurogenesis and elicits anxiolytic-like activities
The results indicate that BDNF overexpression in hippocampal astrocytes produced anxiolytic-/antidepressant-like activity in the novelty suppressed feeding in relation with the stimulation of hippocampal neurogenesis whereas it did not potentiate the effects of the SSRI fluoxetine on these parameters.
Peripheral BDNF Produces Antidepressant-Like Effects in Cellular and Behavioral Models
Results indicate that peripheral/serum BDNF may not only represent a biomarker of MDD, but also have functional consequences on molecular signaling substrates, neurogenesis, and behavior.
