London: A new study has linked psychiatric disorders have to a protein involved in the formation of long-term memories.The study conducted by a team of scientists led by Alexei Morozov at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, has discovered a pathway by which the brain controls a molecule critical to forming long-term memories and connected with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.The mechanism - a protein called Rap1 - controls L-type calcium channels, which participate in the formation of long-term memories.In the experiment, Morozov and colleagues knocked out the gene responsible for coding the enzyme Rap1, which he suspected played a role in activating L-type calcium channels.
