This study has examined the development of immunoreactive myelin basic protein and transferrin in primary glial cell cultures. Cultures were initiated from control and experimental Sprague-Dawley rats 1-2 days postnatally. Experimental treatment involved exposure to 5% (w/v) ethanol in a liquid diet during the last two weeks of gestation. Prenatal alcohol administration delayed the expression of myelin basic protein and transferrin during the first three weeks postnatally. Other… CONTINUE READING
