Abstract

Sprague-Dawley dams were treated with 3 v/v % ethanol in liquid diet from the 8th day gestation through 3 weeks nursing period. Offsprings, ages 1, 2 and 3 weeks, and their dams were studied. Brain weights and their total proteins were not affected by this ethanol treatment. Total enolase activity/mg protein and its isoenzymes, i.e. non-neuron-specific, hybrid and neuron-specific, (mumol/min/mg protein) in 100,000 g supernate, were significantly lower in the treated. Additionally, enolase isoenzyme transformation was delayed.
