Effects of acute ethanol exposure on polyamine and gamma-aminobutyric acid metabolism in the regenerating liver.

Abstract

Recently, it has been suggested that ethanol-induced inhibition of liver regeneration results from decreases in hepatic putrescine levels and/or increases in hepatic gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)ergic activity. Because putrescine can be metabolized by diamine (DAO) and monoamine (MAO) oxidases to GABA, we documented the effects of acute ethanol exposure on… (More)
