Lucía Martí-Prats et al.
Neuropharmacology, 72, 204-214 (2013-05-07)
Recent electrophysiological evidence suggests that ethanol simultaneously exerts opposite effects on the activity of dopamine (DA) neurons in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) through two parallel mechanisms, one promoting and the other reducing the GABA release onto VTA DA neurons.

A novel miniaturized sample extraction capillary was developed to provide a simple and sensitive method for analyzing gaseous formaldehyde (FA) using conventional high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The extraction capillary was prepared by packing silica gel particles in a stainless steel

The sensation of thirst experienced after heavy alcohol drinking is widely regarded as a consequence of ethanol (EtOH)-induced diuresis, but EtOH in high doses actually induces anti-diuresis. The present study was designed to investigate the introduction mechanism of water and

The possibility that acetaldehyde is responsible for some of the central nervous system effects of ethanol has been a popular hypothesis for many years. This review examines the evidence of a role for acetaldehyde in the actions of ethanol in

Biochimica et biophysica acta, 1762(5), 558-563 (2006-04-25)
Analysis of the oxidative modification of plasma and erythrocyte ghost proteins of chronic alcoholic subjects and healthy non-alcoholics has been performed. It was found that increased levels of protein carbonyls in both plasma and erythrocyte ghosts from alcoholic subjects occurred

Orange mint moths, Pyrausta orphisalis (Walker) (Crambidae), were initially trapped in a study of noctuid moth attraction to floral volatiles. A subsequent series of trapping experiments in commercial mint fields determined that phenylacetaldehyde and 4-oxoisophorone were attractive to P. orphisalis

The cladodes of Opuntia ficus-indica (prickly pear cactus) have a low protein content; for use as a balanced feed, supplementation with other protein sources is therefore desirable. We investigated protein enrichment by cultivation of the yeasts Candida utilis and Kluyveromyces

Our previous observation that NADP-dependent secondary alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH-1) is down-regulated in metronidazole-resistant Trichomonas vaginalis isolates prompted us to further characterise the enzyme. In addition to its canonical enzyme activity as a secondary alcohol dehydrogenase, a pronounced, so far unknown

Hepatology (Baltimore, Md.), 60(1), 146-157 (2014-02-05)
Aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2) is the major enzyme that metabolizes acetaldehyde produced from alcohol metabolism. Approximately 40-50% of East Asians carry an inactive ALDH2 gene and exhibit acetaldehyde accumulation after alcohol consumption. However, the role of ALDH2 deficiency in the
