Abstract

The anti-alpha1 antibody elicited higher immunoprecipitation (%) values of the [3H]flunitrazepam and [3H]muscimol binding activity in the rat cerebellum vs. cerebral cortex, whereas immunoprecipitation values for [3H]Ro 15-4513 and [3H]zolpidem were comparable in these brain regions. Chronic ethanol administration neither changed the radioligand binding to the immunoprecipitated pellet nor the percentage immunoprecip-itation values, thereby indicating that chronic ethanol did not result in down-regulation of the GABAA receptor assemblies containing alpha1-subunit.
