Cyclic AMP response element binding protein (CREB)-responsive transcription plays a central role in the formation of long-term memory in Drosophila, Aplysia and mice. Agents that disrupt the activity of CREB specifically block the formation of long-term memory, whereas agents that increase the amount or activity of the transcription factor accelerate the process. These results have led to the recent hypothesis that CREB is pivotal in the switch from short-term (protein synthesis independent) to… Expand
CREB Responsive Transcription and Memory Formation
TLDR
This chapter will review the molecular biology of CREB genes, before summarizing the work that demonstrates CREB is an important factor in memory formation, and addressing the more complex issue of why this requirement remains controversial. Expand
CREB phosphorylation as a molecular marker of memory processing in the hippocampus for spatial learning
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cAMP-dependent protein kinase A (PKA) and CREB are activated in the course of spatial learning and activation of the PKA/CREB signaling pathway in the hippocampus plays an important role in spatial memory formation. Expand
Serine 133 phosphorylation is not required for hippocampal CREB-mediated transcription and behavior.
TLDR
It is shown that CREB phosphorylation at Ser133 is not necessary for CREB binding to CRE sites, CREB-mediated transcription, or CREb-mediated behavioral phenotypes associated with learning and memory. Expand
dCREB2-Mediated Enhancement of Memory Formation
TLDR
It is reaffirmed that overexpression of a dCREB2 activator can enhance memory formation and the complexity of this behavioral enhancement is illustrated. Expand
MAPK regulation of gene expression in the central nervous system.
TLDR
These studies indicate a critical role for the MAPK cascade in the regulation of CREB phosphorylation in the hippocampus, and evaluate the capacity of theMAPK ERK (extracellular signal-regulated kinase) to regulate phosphorylated cAMP response element binding protein in hippocampal area CA1. Expand
Fornix-Dependent Induction of Hippocampal CCAAT Enhancer-Binding Protein β and δ Co-Localizes with Phosphorylated cAMP Response Element-Binding Protein and Accompanies Long-Term Memory Consolidation
TLDR
Results indicate that C/EBPs are evolutionarily conserved components of the CREB-dependent gene cascade activated in long-term memory. Expand
Regulation of late-phase LTP and long-term memory in normal and aging hippocampus: role of secreted proteins tPA and BDNF
TLDR
The cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the structural and functional changes of hippocampal synapses during L-LTP, in the context of long-term memory, are discussed, including the critical role of cAMP/protein kinase A and MAP kinase pathways, and the downstream transcription factor CREB. Expand
Viral‐mediated expression of a constitutively active form of CREB in hippocampal neurons increases memory
TLDR
There is direct evidence that a brief increase in CREB‐dependent transcription in either CA1 or DG neurons, using in vivo viral vectors, is sufficient to boost memory for contextual representations, as tested in the contextual fear conditioning task, without affecting motor, pain, or anxiety behaviors. Expand
The Role of cAMP Response Element-Binding Protein in Drosophila Long-Term Memory
TLDR
It is shown that the dCREB2-a transgene originally reported to enhance LTM carries a mutation that produces a translational reading-frame shift with the consequent formation of a stop codon at predicted amino acid position 79, and an alternative model for the role of d CREB in Drosophila LTM is proposed. Expand
CREB-mediated Enhancement of Hippocampus-dependent Memory Consolidation and Reconsolidation
TLDR
A gain-of-function approach is used to show that CREB (and CREB-coactivator CRTC1) can facilitate both synaptic and systems consolidation and reconsolidation in mice with brain-wide disrupted CREB function. Expand

Deficient long-term memory in mice with a targeted mutation of the cAMP-responsive element-binding protein
TLDR
Consistent with models claiming a role for long-term potentiation (LTP) in memory, LTP in hippocampal slices from CREB mutants decayed to baseline 90 min after tetanic stimulation, however, paired-pulse facilitation and posttetanic potentiation are normal. Expand
CREB as a Memory Modulator: induced expression of a dCREB2 activator isoform enhances long-term memory in drosophila
TLDR
An enhancement of LTM formation is reported after induced expression of an activator isoform of dCREB2 of CREB2, which depends on phosphorylation of the activator transgene. Expand
C/EBP is an immediate-early gene required for the consolidation of long-term facilitation in Aplysia
TLDR
Data indicate that cAMP-inducible immediate-early genes have an essential role in the consolidation of stable long-term synaptic plasticity in Aplysia. Expand
Activation of cAMP-Responsive genes by stimuli that produce long-term facilitation in aplysia sensory neurons
TLDR
Using gene transfer into individual sensory neurons of Aplysia, it is found that serotonin (5-HT) induces transcriptional activation of a lacZ reporter gene driven by the cAMP response element (CRE) and that this induction requires CRE-binding proteins (CREBs). Expand
Induction of a dominant negative CREB transgene specifically blocks long-term memory in Drosophila
TLDR
Using an inducible transgene that expresses a dominant negative member of the fly CREB family, LTM was specifically and completely blocked only after induction, while ARM and learning were unaffected, suggesting that LTM formation requires de novo gene expression probably mediated by CREBfamily genes. Expand
Aplysia CREB2 represses long-term facilitation: Relief of repression converts transient facilitation into long-term functional and structural change
TLDR
Using the bZIP domain of ApC/EBP in a two-hybrid system, ApCREB2, a transcription factor constitutively expressed in sensory neurons that resembles human CREB2 and mouse ATF4, is cloned and has the properties of long-term facilitation. Expand
Effects of cAMP simulate a late stage of LTP in hippocampal CA1 neurons.
TLDR
Activation of PKA may be a component of the mechanism that generates L-LTP, and analogs of cAMP induced a potentiation that blocked naturally induced L- LTP, which was blocked by inhibitors of protein synthesis. Expand
Injection of the cAMP-responsive element into the nucleus of Aplysia sensory neurons blocks long-term facilitation
IN both vertebrates and invertebrates, long-term memory differs from short-term in requiring protein synthesis during training1,2. Studies of the gill and siphon withdrawal reflex in Aplysia indicateExpand
5-HT modulates protein synthesis and the expression of specific proteins during long-term facilitation in aplysia sensory neurons
TLDR
It is suggested that genes and proteins not needed for the short-term process are required for long-term facilitation, and changes in overall and specific protein synthesis in sensory neurons are examined. Expand
cAMP-dependent protein kinase and the disruption of learning in transgenic flies
TLDR
The involvement of PKA in the associative learning of Drosophila is demonstrated as well as the ability of the flies to learn in an odor discrimination task reinforced with electric shock. Expand
