Ethanol enhances the calcium-dependent stimulus-induced release of endogenous dopamine from slices of rat striatum and nucleus accumbens in vitro.

Abstract

When slices of striatum from the rat were preincubated for 40 min in calcium-free medium in vitro, the subsequent release of endogenous dopamine (DA) induced by 40 mM KCl was completely calcium-dependent, showing a maximal response in the presence of 1.5 mM CaCl2, and a half-maximal response in the presence of 0.5 mM CaCl2. In this calcium-dependent… (More)
