    ..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...

    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...

    Cindy 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...

  1. Role of CRF in ethanol negative reinforcement
    CINDY 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. ..
