Reactive oxygen species (ROS), although implicated in morphological birth defects caused by ethanol (EtOH) during pregnancy, have not been directly linked to its behavioral deficits. To determine this, a pathogenic oxidative DNA lesion was measured in fetal brain, and a passive avoidance learning test was assessed postnatally in the progeny of CD-1 mice treated once on gestational day 17 with 4g/kg EtOH or its saline vehicle, with or without pretreatment with the free radical spin trapping… CONTINUE READING
