CAMP response elementbinding protein CREB

Antidepressants usually take weeks to exert significant therapeutic effects. This lag phase is suggested to be due to neural plasticity, which may be mediated by the coupling of receptors to their respective intracellular signal transduction pathways. Phosphorylated CREB, a downstream target of the cAMP signaling pathway, is a molecular state marker for the response to antidepressant treatment in patients with MDD. The transcriptional activity of CREB is upregulated by antidepressant treatment. Therefore, it has been hypothesized that antidepressant treatment exerts its therapeutic effect by this mechanism.74 NCEs under clinical development in this area and other CNS disorders include ND1251, MEM 1917, and HT-0712/IPL-455903 (92).
