Gastrin-releasing peptide inhibits CA1 neurons via increasing inhibitory synaptic transmissions in hippocampal slices of rats.


:Gastrin-releasing peptide plays an important role in regulating the advanced functions of the brain including emotional behavior, learning and memory. What's more, gastrin-releasing peptide levels are also associated with the central nervous system diseases. Our previous study proposed that intraperitoneal injection of gastrin-releasing peptide can improve spatial memory in chronic ischemic model rats. It is well known that the hippocampus is an important brain area related to spatial learning and memory, but the mechanisms of gastrin-releasing peptide on hippocampal neurons are still unclear. In this study, we examined the effects of gastrin-releasing peptide on excitability of hippocampal CA1 neurons and further explored the mechanisms of its effects on synaptic transmission. The results showed that gastrin-releasing peptide inhibited the excitability of CA1 neurons and increased the amplitude and frequency of inhibitory postsynaptic currents significantly. In summary, we demonstrate that gastrin-releasing peptide can inhibit the excitability of hippocampal CA1 area neurons in brain slices and clarify the synaptic transmission mechanism involved in this process, which provide a theoretical basis for gastrin-releasing peptide to improve animal cognitive function, and new ideas for the treatment of related central nervous system diseases.
