Evidence has shown that OUA is release in a different time-course when compared to GC during a stress response. In addition, OUA also interferes with the CRH transport into the circulation indicating that this hormone plays an important role in the stress response. However, there is no data about the OUA effects during a chronic unpredictable stress. The present work aims to investigate the molecular effect of OUA treatment on the HPA axis of rats exposed to chronic unpredictable stress. (AU)
