Norepinephrine, serotonin, and three antidepressants increased cell survival and the immunoreactivity of several intracellular survival proteins, such as BDNF, P-Akt, PI-3K, and P-CREB. However, under the same conditions, but without certain key nutrients, only P-Akt levels showed signs of decreasing. Inhibiting these pro-survival pathways, however, decreased cell survival and most of these survival proteins (not P-Akt), relative to those under conditions of nutrient supplement.
