Radioactivity within individual brain compartments was determined from 5 min to 44 h after intravenous injection of [14C]palmitate into awake Fischer-344 rats, aged 21 days or 3 months. Total radioactivity peaked broadly between 15 min and 1 h after injection, declined rapidly between 1 and 2 h, and then more slowly. In 3-month-old rats, the lipid and(More)
Following intravenous injection of [U-14C]palmitate in awake adult rats, whole brain radioactivity reached a broad maximum between 15–60 min, then declined rapidly to reach a relatively stable level between 4 hr and 20 hr. At 44 hr total radioactivity was 57% of the 4 hr value (p<0.05). About 50% of palmitate which entered the brain from the blood was(More)
The present study examined myelin gangliosides in the developing offspring of rats that were pair-fed control or ethanol liquid diets prior to and during gestation. Between 17 and 31 days of age, we observed an increase in the proportion of GM1 in myelin (from 15% to 38% of ganglioside sialic acid) and a decrease in the proportion of GT1b (from 26% to 4%).(More)
The present study examined proteins and glycoproteins from an axolemma-enriched fraction from the developing offspring of female rats that were pair-fed control or 6.6% (50 g/liter) ethanol liquid diets on a chronic basis prior to parturition. In addition, this study examined the synthesis of the major CNS myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG) as an index of(More)
Previous work from this laboratory has shown that in utero exposure to ethanol significantly alters the synthesis of glycoproteins in synaptic, axolemmal, and myelin membranes from developing rats. In an attempt to determine whether in utero exposure to ethanol similarly alters the synthesis of other glycoconjugates involved with cell-cell interactions, the(More)
