Roles for Regulator of G Protein Signaling Proteins in Synaptic Signaling and Plasticity.
Atlanta, United States. In Mol Pharmacol, Feb 2016
Here, we review and highlight the current knowledge of specific RGS proteins (RGS2, RGS4, RGS7, RGS9-2, and RGS14) that have been clearly demonstrated to serve critical roles in modulating synaptic signaling and plasticity throughout the brain, and we consider their potential as future therapeutic targets.
Pharmacogenetics and antipsychotic treatment response.
Скопје, Macedonia. In Prilozi, 2014
It highlights the most important findings about the impact of functional polymorphisms in genes coding the CYP450 metabolizing enzymes, ABCB1 transporter gene, dopaminergic and serotonergic drug targets (DRD2, DRD3, DRD4, 5-HT1, 5HT-2A, 5HT-2C, 5HT6) as well as genes responsible for metabolism of neurotransmitters and G signalling pathways (5-HTTLPR, BDNF, COMT, RGS4) and points their role as potential biomarkers in everyday clinical practice.
Genetic predisposition to schizophrenia: what did we learn and what does the future hold?
Budapest, Hungary. In Neuropsychopharmacol Hung, 2011
Vulnerability in DISC1, NRG1, DTNBP1, RGS4, KCNH2, COMT, AKT1 and other putative schizophrenia genes, together with copy number variants, leave unexplained the vast majority of diseased cases.
Recent advances in postmortem pathology and neurochemistry in schizophrenia.
Australia. In Curr Opin Psychiatry, 2009
There appear to be complex changes in the expression of proposed candidate genes for schizophrenia such as NRG1, DISC1, RGS4 and DTNB1, and there are continued reports of alterations in central gamma-aminobutyric acidergic, dopaminergic, glutamatergic and cholinergic pathways in patients with the disorder.
