gamma-Aminobutyric acid A (GABA(A)) receptors are believed to mediate a number of alcohol's behavioral actions. Because the subunit composition of GABA(A) receptors determines receptor pharmacology, behavioral sensitivity to alcohol (ethanol) may depend on which subunits are present (or absent). A number of knock-out and/or transgenic mouse models have been(More)
Genetic linkage studies were performed in 12 British families with von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) using RFLPs at three loci (DNF15S2, THRB, RAF1) on the short arm of chromosome 3. Linkage was detected between the VHL disease locus and RAF1 with a maximum lod score of 3.88 at a recombination fraction of 0.05 (confidence interval 0.003-0.18). Multipoint(More)
Our previous work indicated a role for fyn-kinase in mediating several ethanol- and GABA(A) agonist-mediated behaviors. In the present work we investigate behavioral sensitivity to ethanol and several GABA(A) compounds in mice that over-express fyn-kinase in forebrain to further characterize the role of this non-receptor tyrosine kinase in the mediation of(More)
