Blood-borne interleukin-2 (IL-2), like other cytokines, is known to affect the central nervous system (CNS). One mechanism by which circulating substances can alter brain function is to directly cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB). We investigated the ability of IL-2 to cross the BBB, the interface between the periphery and the CNS. IL-2 labeled with 125I(More)
Alcohol-related events have been proposed to be under neurochemical control. For example, the concentration of methionine enkephalin (Met-enkephalin) in brain has been inversely correlated with ethanol consumption in alcohol-preferring and alcohol-nonpreferring mice. The concentrations of Met-enkephalin are controlled in part by peptide transport system-1(More)
