Pathway Linked to Cocaine-Related Brain Changes in Mice | GenomeWeb

A research team has uncovered a pathway governing the histone modifications that occur following repeated cocaine use in mice — findings that provide clues about cocaine-related changes observed in a brain region implicated in drug use.

The team knew from past studies that cocaine use leads to widespread gene activation, with epigenetic processes contributing to these changes, says lead author Ian Maze, a graduate student in Eric Nestler's Mount Sinai School of Medicine lab.
