The effect of ethanol feeding for 5 weeks on lipid peroxidation status of small intestine was studied in rats maintained on either a rat pellet (RP) or a semisynthetic diet containing coconut oil (CCO), corn oil (CO), or fish oil (FO). Highest rate of iron/ascorbate-induced lipid peroxidation was...
Male rats were made physically dependent on ethanol by inhalation of the vapour for 10 days, and c-Fos protein-like immunoreactivity was visualised in the brain of these animals after various periods of ethanol withdrawal. Immunostaining for c-Fos appeared 2 h after ethanol withdrawal, the number...
Recent studies indicate the production of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by human mononuclear leucocytes constitutively or in response to hypothalamic factors and interferon inducers. These results have led to the proposal that the control mechanisms for the proopiomelanocortin (POMC) gene in...
Inbred animal strains provide an opportunity to study genetic factors in alcoholism in the absence of environmental factors. Although the concentration of methionine enkephalin (Met-enkephalin) in whole brain has been implicated in the consumption of ethanol, it has not been studied in the brains...
