CAMP Signaling Network

Description:
Doctor Josh Dubnau explains that the cyclic AMP (cAMP) signaling network can receive signals from outside the cell and use the signal to alter the function of the cell.
Transcript:
The cyclic AMP signaling network is one example of a signaling network that has the property that it allows neurons to receive signals from outside the cell, and transmit that either locally to proteins that already exist and to alter their function, or to signal into the nucleus and tell the neuron it’s time to make a group of new proteins and deliver them out into the cell to alter the function of the cell.

Synaptic Ras GTPase-activating protein 1 (SynGAP), also known as A0024, is a negative regulator of the Ras-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) pathway.
1439. Biochemicals - Excitation and Inhibition
Doctor Josh Dubnau explains that the genes active in different neurons can make them excitatory (e.g. glutamate) or inhibitory (e.g. GABA). These neurotransmitters are critical to learning.
1809. PRKAR2B/A0306
The cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP)-dependent protein kinase regulatory subunit 2 beta (PRKAR2B, also known as A0306) is one of the regulatory subunits of protein kinase A (PKA).
1828. AKAP9/A0009
AKAP9 (A-kinase anchor protein), also known as yotiao or A0009, forms a macromolecular complex with different ion channels and recruits key enzymes such as cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP)-dependent protein kinase A (PKA) and protein phosphatase 1
1365. CREB1 Gene
The cAMP response element-binding protein 1 (CREB1) gene is a CREB activator and has been found to facilitate long-term memory formation.
1438. Gene Expression
Doctor Josh Dubnau explains that some genes are preferentially active in one part of the brain or body, while other genes are particular active in another location.
2241. The major senses - Dana review
The major senses detect and discriminate among signals from the environment. Signals carry information that supports our vital functions, such as taste and smell in eating.
1366. CREB2 Gene
CAMP response element-binding protein 2(CREB2) is also known as Activating Transcription Factor 2 (ATF2). CREB2 is a CREB repressor, which means it inhibits long-term memory formation.
