Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating disease, which affects 8-10% of the population exposed to traumatic events. The factors that make certain individuals susceptible to PTSD and others resilient are currently unknown. Corticotropin-releasing factor receptor type 2 (CRFR2) has been implicated in mediating stress coping mechanisms. Here, we use a physiological PTSD-like animal model and an in-depth battery of tests that reflect the symptomology of PTSD to separate mice into subpopulations of "PTSD-like" and "Resilient" phenotypes. PTSD-like mice are hypervigilant, hyperalert, insomniac, have impaired attention and risk assessment, as well as accompanying attenuated corticosterone levels. Intriguingly, PTSD-like mice show long-term robust upregulation of BNST-CRFR2 mRNA levels, and BNST-CRFR2-specific lentiviral knockdown reduces susceptibility to PTSD-like behavior. Additionally, using a BNST mRNA expression array, PTSD-like mice exhibit a general transcriptional attenuation profile, which was associated with upregulation of the BNST-deacetylation enzyme, HDAC5. We suggest PTSD to be a disease of maladaptive coping.
