P11 protein

Template:DISPLAYTITLE:p11 protein p11 is a protein found in the brain of humans and other mammals which has been implicated in the regulation of mood. A mouse study from 2006 found that low levels of p11 are likely to prevent the raising of serotonin levels from immediately curing clinical depression. The protein is thus a strong candidate target molecule for new antidepressant drugs.
