  65. ncbi request reprint Phosphorylation of CREB Ser142 regulates light-induced phase shifts of the circadian clock
    Daniel Gau
    Division of Molecular Biology of the Cell I, German Cancer Research Center, Im Neuenheimer Feld 280, 69120, Heidelberg, Germany
    Neuron 34:245-53. 2002
    ..Our findings provide genetic evidence that CREB Ser142 phosphorylation is involved in the entrainment of the mammalian clock and reveal a novel phosphorylation-dependent regulation of CREB activity...
  66. ncbi request reprint Fibronectin domains of extracellular matrix molecule tenascin-C modulate hippocampal learning and synaptic plasticity
    Tatyana Strekalova
    Zentrum für Molekulare Neurobiologie, Universitat Hamburg, Martinistrasse 52, D 20246 Hamburg, Germany
    Mol Cell Neurosci 21:173-87. 2002
    ..In summary, our data show that TN-C is involved in hippocampus-dependent contextual memory and synaptic plasticity and identify the FN6-8 domain as one of molecular determinants mediating these functions...
  67. ncbi request reprint Does cAMP response element-binding protein have a pivotal role in hippocampal synaptic plasticity and hippocampus-dependent memory?
    Detlef Balschun
    Department of Neurophysiology, Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology, 39108 Magdeburg, Germany
    J Neurosci 23:6304-14. 2003
    ..This implies either a species-specific or regionally restricted role of CREB in the brain and/or a compensatory upregulation of the cAMP response element modulator (CREM) and other as yet unidentified transcription factors...
  68. ncbi request reprint Impaired long-term memory and NR2A-type NMDA receptor-dependent synaptic plasticity in mice lacking c-Fos in the CNS
    Alexander Fleischmann
    Research Institute of Molecular Pathology, 1030 Vienna, Austria
    J Neurosci 23:9116-22. 2003
    ..In summary, our data suggest a role for c-Fos in hippocampus-dependent learning and memory as well as in NMDA receptor-dependent LTP formation...

  70. ncbi request reprint Reduced cell proliferation in the dentate gyrus is not correlated with the development of learned helplessness
    Barbara Vollmayr
    Central Institute of Mental Health, Mannheim, Germany
    Biol Psychiatry 54:1035-40. 2003
    ..A plethora of indirect findings suggests that mood disorders may be caused by or result in structural changes in the brain, namely decreased hippocampal cell proliferation...
  71. ncbi request reprint Stress-resistant mice overexpressing glucocorticoid receptors display enhanced BDNF in the amygdala and hippocampus with unchanged NGF and serotonergic function
    Olaf Schulte-Herbrüggen
    Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Charite University Medicine Berlin, Campus Benjamin Franklin, Eschenallee 3, 14050 Berlin, Germany
    Psychoneuroendocrinology 31:1266-77. 2006
    ..In conclusion, GR overexpression-dependent increases of hippocampal and amygdala BDNF content presumably represent a dynamic correlate of enhanced stress resistance...
  72. ncbi request reprint Modulation of anxiety-like behavior and morphine dependence in CREB-deficient mice
    Olga Valverde
    Laboratori de Neurofarmacologia, Facultat de Ciences de la Salut I de la Vida, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain
    Neuropsychopharmacology 29:1122-33. 2004
    ..Our results emphasize the selective role played by neuronal CREB in emotional-like behavior and the somatic expression morphine withdrawal, without participating in the rewarding properties induced by morphine and cocaine...

    Andreas Reif
    Molecular and Clinical Psychobiology, Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Julius Maximilians University Würzburg, Fuchsleinstr 15, D 97080 Wurzburg, Germany
    Eur J Neurosci 20:885-95. 2004
    ..In conclusion, our results indicated that NOS-III is involved in the proliferation of neuronal progenitor cells, although behavioural analysis does not provide evidence for a pro-depressive effect of reduced neuroneogenesis...
