Impaired myocardial protein synthesis induced by acute alcohol intoxication is associated with changes in eIF4F.


The purpose of the present study was to examine potential mechanisms for the known inhibitory effect of acute alcohol exposure on myocardial protein synthesis. Rats were injected intraperitoneally with either ethanol (75 mmol/kg) or saline, and protein synthesis was measured in vivo 2.5 h thereafter by use of the flooding-dose L-[(3)H]phenylalanine… (More)
