Effects of Systemic Nicotine, Alcohol or Their Combination on Cholinergic Markers in the Frontal Cortex and Hippocampus of Rat
The results indicate that Nic and Alc alone may interact with the central cholinergic system and this interactive effect may contribute to a frequent association of tobacco and Alc consumption. Expand
Ethanol- and acetaldehyde-induced cholinergic imbalance in the hippocampus of Aldh2-knockout mice does not affect nerve growth factor or brain-derived neurotrophic factor
It is suggested that administration of EtOH and elevated AcH can alter cholinergic markers in the hippocampus of mice, and this effect did not change the levels of NGF or BDNF. Expand
Accuracy and Usefulness of the AVOXimeter 4000 as Routine Analysis of Carboxyhemoglobin
The usefulness of the AVOX to analyze postmortem blood, and the AVOx is suitable for routine forensic analysis and can be applied at the crime scene are suggested. Expand

Aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 deficiency increases resting-state glutamate and expression of the GluN1 subunit of N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor in the frontal cortex of mice
These novel findings provide the first evidence for the role of ALDH2 in glutamate release and GluN1 protein expression in the frontal cortex and suggest that enhanced glutamatergic function facilitates improved spatial memory in Aldh2-KO mice. Expand
