GABA interneurons are the cellular trigger for ketamine’s rapid antidepressant actions

03 December 2019 | Posted by: Etienne Sibille
A single sub-anesthetic dose of ketamine, an NMDA receptor (NMDAR) antagonist, produces rapid and sustained antidepressant actions in depressed patients, addressing a major unmet need for the treatment of mood disorders. Ketamine produces a rapid increase in extracellular glutamate and synaptic formation in the prefrontal cortex, but the initial cellular trigger that initiates these and its behavioral actions has not been identified. To address this question, we used a combination of viral shRNA and conditional mutation to produce cell specific knockdown or deletion of a key NMDAR subunit...View full Article
