Neural stem cells (NSCs) produce synaptamide (N-docosahexaenoylethanolamine) from docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Synaptamide potently induces neuronal differentiation of NSCs through PKA-CREB signaling. The neurogenic capacity of NSCs is linked to the endogenous synaptamide level which depends on synaptamide stability and DHA availability in NSCs. Dietary omega-3 fatty acid intake that influences endogenous DHA and synaptamide levels may have significant impact on neurodevelopment.
