Gene References into Functions
  1. These findings robustly demonstrate aberrant interactions of stress and reward networks after early-life adversity and suggest mechanistic roles for Crh-expressing amygdala neurons in emotional deficits portending major neuropsychiatric disorders. PMID: 29033027
  2. CRF (25-200 nM) concentration-dependently diminished evoked compound excitatory postsynaptic potentials, but increased miniature excitatory postsynaptic current frequencies similarly in central amygdala neurons of both naive and ethanol-dependent rats, indicating reduced evoked glutamatergic responses and enhanced vesicular glutamate release, respectively. CRF primarily acts at presynaptic CRF1. PMID: 28807676
  3. the results from the present study suggest that the activation of the CRF system in anxiety-related regions (such as the cingulate cortex, the hippocampus, the amygdala) PMID: 28935440
  4. Results of the present study indicate that corticotropin-releasing factor neurons are the output neurons of the oval nucleus of the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis and they send projections not only to the centres of neuroendocrine and autonomic regulation, but also regions modulating reward and motivation, vigilance and motor function, as well as affective behaviour. PMID: 27805752
  5. Chronic restraint stress (5 weeks, 3h/day) attenuated CRF expression in the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus and dentate gyrus of high-anxiety rats, which was probably due to dysregulation of hormonal feedback mechanisms and enhancement of local neurodegenerative processes; induced symptoms of anhedonia (decreased consumption of 1% sucrose solution) in high-anxiety rats. PMID: 27150225

  13. immunofluorescence double staining showed that CRF was extensively colocalized with neurons, but hardly with astrocytes or microglia PMID: 26138585
  14. Neuronal TLR4/MCP-1 signal was sustained during alcohol drinking by increased expression of corticotropin-releasing factor and its feedback regulation of TLR4 expression, likely contributing to the transition to alcohol dependence PMID: 25567426
  15. Electroacupuncture significantly reduces visceral hypersensitivity in rats, and regulated the expression of CRH protein and mRNA in the colon, spinal cord and hypothalamus. PMID: 26109804
  16. Study shows that pain-induced anxiety is mediated by corticotropin-releasing factor neurotransmission in the locus coeruleus through extracellular signal-regulated kinases 1/2 signaling cascade PMID: 25716783
  17. Prenatal stress is associated with the demethylation of the CRH promoter. PMID: 24682755
  18. The differentiated behavioral stress responses were reflected by gene expression changes in the pituitary. Alterations in the mRNA levels of Crh, Ucn2 and Ucn3 in the pituitary might confirm the paracrine and/or autocrine effects of these peptides PMID: 25236411
  19. A significantly increased hippocampal CRH was observed in the adult rats with postnatal maternal separation. PMID: 24718660
  20. Results show that hypertension triggers downregulation of CRF gene expression in the amygdala and significantly alters the heart rate response to acute stress but does not alter the pressor response to stress compared to normotensive controls PMID: 25139171

  24. Overexpression of FosB or cJun potently increases CRF mRNA levels. PMID: 24246425

  31. studies demonstrate that CRF neurons within the lateral BNST modulate conditioned anxiety-like behaviors and also suggest that enhanced CRF expression within these neurons may contribute to inappropriate regulation of emotional memories PMID: 22290119
