Ethanol affects differentiation-related pathways and suppresses Wnt signaling protein expression in human neural stem cells.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Prenatal exposure of the fetus to ethanol (EtOH) can be teratogenic. We previously showed that EtOH alters the cell fate of human neural stem cells (NSC). As Wnt signaling plays an important role in fetal brain development, we hypothesized that EtOH suppresses Wnt signaling protein expression in differentiating NSC and thereby contributes to… (More)
