Abstract

The induction of metallothionein (MT) isoform synthesis was investigated in mouse cerebral cortex 18 h after oral ethanol administration. The expression of MT-I isoform mRNA increased in a dose-dependent manner after ethanol loading at doses between 2 g/kg (ethanol/body weight) and 8 g/kg. Lipid peroxide formation, measured as the amount of malondialdehyde- reactive substances, remained at the control level after all of the administered ethanol doses. The expression of MT-III isoform mRNA remained at the control level up until an ethanol loading dose of 4 g/kg and then finally increased to a significant level at a dose of 8 g/kg, which is almost the LD50 for oral ethanol in mice. The different patterns of MT synthesis induction among MT isoforms suggests that the MT-I isoform, which is ubiquitous in mammalian tissues, plays a significant role as an antioxidant. On the other hand, the MT-III isoform, which has a limited tissue distribution, especially in the central nervous system, seems to be implicated in tissue repair and/or protection against critical tissue injury.
