Here we report that low concentrations of alcohol (1-3 mM) increased Cl(-) currents gated by a recombinant GABA(A) receptor, alpha(4)beta(2)delta, by 40-50% in Xenopus laevis oocytes. We also found greater hippocampal expression of receptors containing alpha(4) and delta subunits, using a rat model of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) in which 1-3 mM alcohol(More)
