Are chronic alcohol-induced central vasopressin changes determinant in strain dependency of tolerance in mice?

Abstract

As vasopressin (VP) has been related to tolerance, we were interested in following central VP levels after chronic alcohol exposure of two selected mouse lines (C57Bl and Balb/c). Strongly elevated VP and VP mRNA levels have been noted, in particular in the hypothalamus. The phenomenon is much more marked in Balb/c mice than in C57Bl; in extrahypothalamic… (More)
