Abstract

Cycloheximide (20 mg/kg body wt, given intraperitoneally at —1 and 3 h after withdrawal of an ethanol-containing liquid diet) prevents the activation of liver tryptophan pyrrolase, the consequent inhibition of synthesis of brain 5-hydroxytryptamine, and the audiogenic seizures observed at 7 h after alcohol withdrawal. We suggest that a rapidly-turning-over protein mediates the alcohol withdrawal syndrome and discuss the possible role of liver tryptophan pyrrolase.
