Buthionine sulfoximine inhibits gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase, the enzyme catalyzing the first reaction of glutathione (GSH) biosynthesis. GSH synthesis is blocked in animals or cultured cells exposed to buthionine sulfoximine, and GSH is substantially depleted in cells or tissues with moderate to high rates of GSH utilization. Studies reported to date(More)
In this study, we assessed the effects of chronic prenatal ethanol exposure (CPEE) on spatial navigation in the water maze, conditioned responding using food-reinforced lever pressing, and amino acid neurotransmitter release from the hippocampus of the adult guinea pig. Pregnant guinea pigs were treated with ethanol (3 g/kg of maternal body weight/day),(More)
