Point mutant mice with hypersensitive α4 nicotinic receptors show dopaminergic deficits and increased anxiety
Knock-in mice were generated that harbored a leucine-to-serine mutation in the α4 nicotinic receptor near the gate in the channel pore. Mice with intact expression of this hypersensitive receptorExpand

GABAA-Receptor δ subunit knockout mice have multiple defects in behavioral responses to ethanol
BACKGROUND The gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptors (GABARs) are involved in mediating some of the behavioral effects of beverage alcohol (ethanol). However, the unique pharmacological andExpand

Decreased ethanol sensitivity and tolerance development in gamma-protein kinase C null mutant mice is dependent on genetic background.
Initial sensitivity and tolerance development to the sedative-hypnotic and hypothermic effects of ethanol were investigated in gamma-protein kinase C (PKC) null mutant mice. Null mutants from aExpand
