Description

Blockade of the behavioral effects of antidepressants by anisomycin.

A behavioral assay (forced swimming test), sensitive to antidepressant-like effect, was performed. The interaction between the effect of fluoxetine or desipramine (two clinically effective antidepressants) with anisomycin (blocker of protein synthesis) was assessed. Brain samples from this experiment are now prepared to be sent to the University of Helsinki for molecular analysis.
