CREB-1: in "Memory" they're calling it 'the cAMP-response element binding
Quote:"It is the action of the phosphorylated form of CREB-1 that switches
on the genes needed to form long-term memory."


Excerpts general:
"Following hormonal stimulation of a neuroendocrine cell, forexample,
increased cAMP levels activate cAMP-dependent protein kinase A, which
phosphorylates 1 or moreDNA-binding proteins. These in turn stimulate
transcription of an array of cAMP-responsive genes. All cAMP-responsive gene
promoters have in common an 8-base enhancer known as the cAMP-response
element (CRE)containing a conserved core sequence, 5-prime-TGACG-3-prime,
first described in the somatostatin gene by Montminy et al. (1986). Montminy
and Bilezikjian (1987) purified a 43-kD nuclear phosphoprotein, which binds
to CRE with highaffinity.Transcriptional activity of CREB requires
phosphorylation of the protein on a serine residue at position 119. "

Last, I was thinking of the process IN the neuron, not in the ovarian
granulosa cells................
