Inhibition of recombinant GluN1/GluN2A and GluN1/GluN2B N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors by single malt whiskies.

NMDARs (N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors) are considered to be a target for the inhibitory actions of ethanol. While profound inhibition of both native and recombinant NMDARs can be observed following the application of high concentrations of ethanol the levels of inhibition seen with lower concentrations of ethanol are more modest. Here, we report the… CONTINUE READING
