Genetically determined differences in ethanol sensitivity influenced by body temperature during intoxication.

Abstract

The present study investigated the importance of body temperature during intoxication in mediating differences between five inbred strains of mice (C57BL/6J; BALB/cJ; DBA/2J; A/HeJ; 129/J) in their acute sensitivity to the hypnotic effects of ethanol. Mice exposed to 22 degrees C after ethanol injection became hypothermic and exhibited statistically… (More)
