The neural membrane-bound enzymes, acetylcholinesterase, Na/K-ATPase and Ca-ATPase were examined in six brain areas in perinatal rats at 5, 15 and 25 days of age following alcohol exposure in utero. Female Wistar rats were mated with adult male Wistar rats and maintained on either a liquid diet containing ethanol (5% w/v) or on a control liquid diet for various periods during gestation and the perinatal period. These periods were: before and during gestation only (until birth of the offspring… CONTINUE READING
