Ethanol actions on alpha-amino-3-hydyroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (AMPA)-type glutamate receptors were studied using voltage-clamp recordings from mouse cortical and hippocampal neurons. During whole-cell recordings ethanol (EtOH) inhibited AMPA receptor-mediated currents in a dose-dependent manner at concentrations from 10 to 500 mM. The steady-state component of AMPA-activated current was more sensitive to EtOH than the peak component. To examine the effect of EtOH on a well… CONTINUE READING
