The mode of action of ethanol on batrachotoxinin-A benzoate binding to sodium channels in mouse brain cortex.


Since ethanol has local anesthetic activity its effect was examined in vitro on the scorpion toxin-enhanced specific binding of [3H]batrachotoxinin A 20-alpha-benzoate ([3H]BTX-B) to the gating complex in sodium channel preparations from mouse brain cortex by equilibrium and kinetic experiments. Ethanol inhibited the specific binding of [3H]BTX-B in a… (More)
