Summary of "Citrus flavonoid 3,5,6,7,8,3',4'-heptamethoxyflavone induces BDNF via cAMP/ERK/CREB signaling and reduces phosphodiesterase activity in C6 cells."

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is associated with onset of several central nervous system disorders, e.g., Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, depression, epilepsy, and chronic pain. In our previous in vivo studies using ischemic and depression mouse models, we revealed that citrus flavonoid 3,5,6,7,8,3',4'-heptamethoxyflavone (HMF) exerts neuroprotective effects by enhancing the expression of BDNF in astrocytes within the hippocampus. Therefore, in the present study, we examined the mechanism of BDNF induction by HMF in vitro using rat C6 glioma cells.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A member of the p300-CBP transcription factor family that was initially identified as a binding partner for CAMP RESPONSE ELEMENT-BINDING PROTEIN. Mutations in CREB-binding protein are associated with RUBINSTEIN-TAYBI SYNDROME.

A plant genus of the family LAMIACEAE. The common names of beebalm or lemonbalm are also used for MELISSA. The common name of bergamot is also used for Citrus bergamia (CITRUS).

A structurally-diverse family of intracellular-signaling adaptor proteins that selectively tether specific protein kinase A subtypes to distinct subcellular sites. They play a role in focusing the PROTEIN KINASE A activity toward relevant substrates. Over fifty members of this family exist, most of which bind specifically to regulatory subunits of CYCLIC AMP-DEPENDENT PROTEIN KINASE TYPE II such as CAMP PROTEIN KINASE RIIALPHA or CAMP PROTEIN KINASE RIIBETA.

A plant genus of the family RUTACEAE. They bear the familiar citrus fruits including oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and limes. There are many hybrids which makes the nomenclature confusing.

A plant species of the genus CITRUS, family RUTACEAE that provides the familiar orange fruit which is also a source of orange oil.
