Antidepressant-like effect of ascorbic acid is associated with the modulation of mammalian target of rapamycin pathway.
These pathways include the Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor, the scavenger receptor CD-36, the cyclooxygenase 2 and its beneficial prostaglandin products, and the mammalian Target of Rapamycin protein.
Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is a master sensor of energy status and will be inhibited in the state of energy depletion.[15] Myocardial energy depletion plays a major role in myocardial dysfunction during sepsis.[16],[17] There are little data describing the role of the mTOR pathway during sepsis in the heart.[18] Furthermore, among various pathways known to regulate autophagy in mammalian cells, mTOR complex 1 (mTORC1)/S6 kinase-1 (S6K1) signaling pathway is one of the best-understood pathways.[19] Accumulating evidence has indicated that the mTORC1/S6K1 pathway negatively regulates autophagy, so the relationship between the mTOR pathway and the change of autophagy process in cecal ligation and puncture (CLP)-induced myocardial dysfunction was investigated in this study.
The mechanism involves a previously unknown protein complex called mammalian target of rapamycin complex 3 (mTORC3).
Standing originally for mammalian Target of Rapamycin (and more recently mechanistic Target of Rapamycin), mTOR is an enzymatic complex that drives growth in humans and other organisms.
