Significance Ethanol exerts various functions by acting on ion channels in neural systems. Despite its biological importance… Expand This study is on the analysis of ethanol binding sites on 3D structures of nonredundant proteins from the Protein Data Bank. The… Expand Cys-loop receptors constitute a superfamily of pentameric ligand-gated ion channels (pLGICs), including receptors for… Expand Introduction In vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) can provide a direct quantitative measure of brain ethanol following… Expand The glycine receptor (GlyR) is potentiated by ethanol and other anesthetics. The potentiation mechanism at the molecular level is… Expand The binding of ethanol to rat liver mitochondria is shown to be saturable at physiologically relevant ethanol concentrations… Expand The binding of ethanol to rat liver microsomes is shown to be saturable at clinically relevant ethanol concentrations, whereas… Expand The influence of lipid composition on the response of bilayers to ethanol binding was investigated with 2H NMR spectroscopy. The… Expand The mechanisms behind the membrane-mediated effects of ethanol were examined via the interaction of ethanol with phospholipid… Expand By means of the scanning differential calorimetry, x-ray diffractometry, and the dynamic light scattering, we have systematically… Expand
