Prolyl oligopeptidase, inositol phosphate signalling and lithium sensitivity

Harwood, Adrian John 2011. Prolyl oligopeptidase, inositol phosphate signalling and lithium sensitivity. CNS & Neurological Disorders - Drug Targets 10 (3) , pp. 333-339. 10.2174/187152711794653779

Inhibition of prolyl oligopeptidase (PO) elevates inositol phosphate (IP) signalling and reduces cell sensitivity to lithium (Li+). This review discusses recent evidence that shows PO acts via the multiple inositol polyphosphate phosphatase (MIPP) to regulate gene expression. As a consequence, PO inhibition causes both a transient, rapid increase in I(1,4,5)P3 and a long-term elevation of IP signalling. This pathway is evolutionary conserved, being present in both the social amoeba Dictyostelium and human cell systems, and has potential implications for mental health.
