Abstract

Ethanol alone had no effect on neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) expression in PC12 cells. However, in the presence of nerve growth factor (NGF), nNOS expression was amplified (threefold, P < 0.05), compared to NGF alone. This increase was eliminated with pretreatment of PC12 cells with staurosporine, suggesting that the effects of ethanol on nNOS expression are mediated by a protein kinase C-dependent pathway.
