Gene Information
Original ID1:Ensa
Original ID2:AJ005985
Dataset Information
Tissue:Nucleus accumbens, prefrontal cortex, and ventral tegmental area
Phenotype:Acute ethanol response
Publication:Kerns et al. J Neurosci. (2005) Ethanol-responsive brain region expression networks: implications for behavioral responses to acute ethanol in DBA/2J versus C57BL/6J mice. PubMed
Summary:The inbred mouse strains DBA/2J and C57BL/6J exhibit contrasting acute behavioral responses to ethanol. We used oligonucleotide microarrays and bioinformatics methods to characterize patterns of gene expression in three brain regions of the mesolimbic reward pathway of these strains. Expression profiling included examination of both differences in gene expression 4 h after acute ethanol (2 g/kg). Using a rigorous stepwise method for microarray analysis, we identified 307 ethanol-regulated genes in the nucleus accumbens, prefrontal cortex, and ventral tegmental area.
