    Department of Pharmacology, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, 78229 3900, USA
    Biol Psychiatry 71:633-41. 2012
    ..In this study, behavioral consequences, as well as receptor mechanisms underlying these hormonal effects, were investigated...

    S Benmansour
    Department of Pharmacology, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, Texas 78284, USA
    J Neurosci 19:10494-501. 1999
    ..Based on these results, it appears that the SERT is downregulated by chronic administration of SSRIs but not other types of antidepressants; furthermore, the downregulation is not caused by decreases in SERT gene expression...

    J Neurosci 22:6766-72. 2002
    ..SERT binding sites decreases are not a consequence of reduced SERT gene expression, as revealed by in situ hybridization measurements. SSRI-induced downregulation of the SERT may be a key component for the clinical response to SSRIs...
  4. doi request reprint Impact of ovarian hormones on the modulation of the serotonin transporter by fluvoxamine
    Saloua Benmansour
    Department of Pharmacology, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, San Antonio, TX 78229 3900, USA
    Neuropsychopharmacology 34:555-64. 2009
    ..The finding that acutely both estradiol and progesterone can inhibit the ability of an SSRI to slow the clearance of 5-HT, may have important implications for the use of SSRIs in women...

    Saloua Benmansour
    Department of Pharmacology, University of Texas Health Science Center, 7703 Floyd Curl Drive, San Antonio, TX 78229 3900, USA
    Biol Psychiatry 55:313-6. 2004
    ..This study investigated if chronic treatment of rats with selective NRIs or SSRIs also affected the norepinephrine transporter (NET)...

    Saloua Benmansour
    Department of Pharmacology, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Texas 78229, USA
    Eur J Pharmacol 587:90-8. 2008
    ..Such acute effects of BDNF would be expected to counter early effects of SSRIs, which might, in part, account for some delay in therapeutic effect...

    Pharmacol Biochem Behav 90:174-83. 2008
    ..Thus, the neurochemical sight of this question will be addressed here by examining the consequences of either a constitutive decrease or increase in brain BDNF protein levels on hippocampal extracellular levels of 5-HT in conscious mice...
