Lead researcher Fiona Marshall said greater understanding of CRF1 protein could lead to ground-breaking drugs to control depression.

It questioned whether single molecule could really lead to depression, and said condition actually resulted from complex interaction of chemicals. An NHS statement expressed surprise at way two of Britain's biggest newspapers have built story up – " Daily Mail" and " Sunday Times". latter reported that researchers had found "miserable molecule," saying it was " protein involved in all our feelings of stress, anxiety and even depression".
