- Chronic ethanol exposure increases microtubule content in PC12 cellsCindy K Reiter-Funk
Dept of Human Anatomy and Medical Neurobiology, College of Medicine, Texas A and M University System Health Science Center, College Station, TX 77843, USA
BMC Neurosci 6:16. 2005..We examined the effect of chronic ethanol exposure on microtubule content in PC12 cells and the role of PKC epsilon and delta in ethanol's effect on microtubule levels...
- Corticotropin-releasing factor 1 antagonists selectively reduce ethanol self-administration in ethanol-dependent ratsCindy K Funk
Molecular and Integrative Neurosciences Department, The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, California 92037, USA
Biol Psychiatry 61:78-86. 2007..Here, we used an animal model of ethanol dependence to test the effects of CRF(1) receptor antagonists on excessive ethanol self-administration in dependent rats...
- Corticotropin-releasing factor within the central nucleus of the amygdala mediates enhanced ethanol self-administration in withdrawn, ethanol-dependent ratsCindy K Funk
The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, California 92037, USA
J Neurosci 26:11324-32. 2006..There was no change in CRF immunoreactivity in the BNST or NAcSh. These results indicate that CRF, specifically within the CeA, plays a role in mediating excessive ethanol consumption in ethanol-dependent animals...
- Role of CRF in ethanol negative reinforcementCINDY REITER; Fiscal Year: 2006..The overall hypothesis is that increased CRF activity in the extended amygdala is responsible for the enhanced drinking associated with withdrawal. ..
