Abstract

Alcohol ingestion has adverse effects on the central nervous system (CNS). The hippocampus is one of the target sites of ethanol neurotoxicity. We hypothesized that short-term ethanol exposure alters the expression of neurotrophins and their receptors, leading to functional disruption in the CNS. Male BALB/C mice were fed a liquid diet containing 5% (v/v) ethanol. Pair-fed control mice were maintained on an identical liquid diet, except that ethanol was isocalorically substituted with sucrose. The hippocampus of mice exhibiting stages 1-2 of ethanol intoxication signs were used in the present study. Short-term ethanol exposure did not alter the mRNA expression of neurotrophin ligand/receptor (nerve growth factor [NGF]/TrkA and brain-derived neurotrophic factor [BDNF]/TrkB) systems in the hippocampus. Similarly, the expression of the glial-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), which is known to be a first-acting agent against ethanol neurotoxicity, and its receptor GFRα1 was not affected by short-term ethanol exposure. The mechanisms involved in the hippocampal neurotrophin responses against ethanol neurotoxicity remain unknown. However, our findings could provide a basis for further studies on the possible alterations in the expression of various neurotrophins related to hippocampal functions.
