Chronic imipramine downregulates cyclic AMP signaling in rat hippocampus

Reierson, Gillian W.; Mastronardi, Claudio; Licinio, Julio; Wong, Ma-Li


Cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) and cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) are synthesized by adenylate cyclase and guanylyl cyclase and degraded by phosphodiesterases. Antidepressant treatment action is hypothesized to occur through increased cAMP signaling; however, antidepressants are also reported to increase phosphodiesterase-4 expression. We addressed this paradox by systematically studying elements of intracellular signaling in the hippocampus of rats chronically treated with...[Show more]
