Imidazoline receptor proteins are decreased in the hippocampus of individuals with major depression.


BACKGROUND A downregulation of I(2)-imidazoline binding sites has been reported in frontal cortices of depressed suicide victims, according to I(2)-radioligand binding and confirmed by Western blotting. We now report Western blots of imidazoline receptor proteins in hippocampi of subjects with and without depression at the time of death. METHODS… (More)
