Neuronal nicotinic acetyl- tion of nicotinic receptors in the VTA, ultimately leading choline receptors are structurally related to GABAAreceptors 1416 Neuropsychopharmacology: The Fifth Generation of Progress (41). Activation of these nicotinic receptors may enhance the development of alcoholism. One gene variant (allele) is ethanol reinforcement and voluntary intake (42). Alcohol Some studies have implicated involvement of the seroto- dehydrogenase (ADH) metabolizes ethanol to acetaldehyde, nin receptors 5-HT3 and possibly 5-HT4 in DA release a toxic intermediate, which is in turn converted to acetate in the NAC (31,43).

The most important variants are ALDH2-2 (Glu487–Lys487) and ADH2-2 GENETIC STUDIES OF ALCOHOLISM IN (Arg47–His47).

This proposed mechanism is consistent with the the paucity of highly selective ligands for these multiple increase in stress-related behaviors that are seen in certain target sites, several investigators have employed murine gene transgenic mice with mutations in the GABAA receptor (see targeting strategies to elucidate the roles of specific 5-HT below). Further work is necessary to determine the precise receptors in the regulation of stress and anxiety.

Whereas GAD67 is thought Related Disorders to maintain basal GABA levels, GAD65 is thought to regu- late the synthesis of GABA at nerve terminals in response As mentioned above, one of the most commonly prescribed to high GABA demand (150). Given the important role and effective classes of drugs that is used in the treatment of GABA in inhibitory neurotransmission associated with of depression and anxiety is the SSRIs, which block the anxiolysis, several investigators have evaluated the behav- reuptake of 5-HT by its transporter and thereby increase ioral profile of genetically altered mice that lack the GAD65 serotoninergic transmission. Two separate groups have reported that GAD65 clinical studies including those obtained from 5-HT recep- mice display an increase in stress-like behaviors in numerous tor knockout mice, 5-HT1A agonists have been developed behavioral paradigms (151,152). The clinical utility of this class had fewer entries into and time spent in the center of an of compounds, however, remains to be determined.

Enhanced sensitivity may be achieved by measuring many different subtypes. Fortunately, nature has localized the 13C enrichment of a molecule through indirect detection key enzymes and metabolites involved in neurotransmitter through 1H MRS. From these measurements the flux cycling in specific cell types, which greatly simplifies the through specific metabolic pathways may be calculated (17, interpretation of the MRS measurements.

Glucose is metabolized to pyruvate functional imaging signal and specific neuronal processes. The 318 Neuropsychopharmacology: The Fifth Generation of Progress The rate of neuronal glucose oxidation has been deter- mined in several studies from 13C MRS and 1H-13CMRS measurements of cerebral cortex glutamate turnover from a [1-13C] glucose precursor in animal models (2,14–17, 21,22,25–27) and humans (12,13,18,19,29,31,35,43,44). Comparison of the rates of neuronal glucose oxidation mea- sured in these studies with conventional arteriovenous (AV) difference and PET measurements of total glucose con- sumption found that the majority (between 70% and 90%) of total glucose oxidation in the rat and human brain is associated with the large glutamate pool, believed to reflect glutamatergic neurons, measured by MRS.

The estimate is a minimum TCA cycle because subsequent labeling in the C3 position because label may bypass GABA and continue from -keto- of glutamate can be measured to allow calculation of the glutarate/glutamate into the TCA cycle directly.

This label is then incorpo- rated via the combined action of pyruvate dehydrogenase and the TCA cycle into -ketoglutarate, which is in rapid exchange with glutamate due to the action of several transaminases.
