    Reduced activity of hippocampal silent information regulator protein 2 (SirT2) has been associated with the development of depression caused by disturbances in neuronal and synaptic plasticity. However, changes in the hippocampal SirTs in olfactory bulbectomized (OBX) mice, an animal model of depression, remain unknown. Therefore, this study examined depressive-like behaviors, hippocampal SirTs, synaptic plasticity-associated proteins, and cell proliferation in OBX mice. The OBX mice showed depressive-like behaviors; reduced SirT2, synaptophysin, and PSD95 levels; and reduced cell proliferation in the hippocampus. These data indicate that decreased hippocampal SirT2 may contribute to pathophysiological depression and strongly affect the psychological state.
