The content of beta-endorphin-like immunoreactivity (beta-EPLIR) in the anterior and neurointermediate lobe of the pituitary gland, the hypothalamus and the serum of the c57BL/6, BALB/C and DBA/2 inbred strains of mice was estimated at the resting state as well as 45 min after i.p. injection of either ethanol solution (3.0 g/kg.b.wt.) or saline. At the resting state, the neurointermediate lobe and the serum of the c57BL/6 mice showed the highest content of beta-EPLIR, while no statistically… CONTINUE READING
