Ethanol caused a dose-dependent accumulation of DOPA in the corpus striatum after inhibition of DOPA-decarboxylase suggesting an increased synthesis of DA.

Administration of ethanol and L-dopa, as compared to the administration of L-dopa only, markedly increased brain levels of dopa and dopamine.

Injection of 3-O-methyl dopa at acidic pH or 0.1 N HCl, but not the same drug dosage at neutral pH or saline, resulted in reduction of voluntary drinking of ethanol by the male rat.

Abstract Acute oral administration of ethanol (3.2g/kg) to normal rats increased DOPAC levels and DOPA formation in the caudate nucleus but had no effect in the substantia nigra and frontal cortex and failed to modify dopamine (DA) levels in any of the above brain areas.

A single oral administration … 3.2 g/kg ethanol to normal rats increased 3,…-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) content and DOPA formation in the caudate nucleus but had no effect in frontal cortex and substantia nigra and did not modify dopamine (DA) levels in any of the brain regions analyzed.

Eight hours after a single (3 g/kg) dose of ethanol, DOPA synthesis was increased and pimozide, a dopamine receptor antagonist, stimulated DOPA synthesis to the same degree in ethanol-treated and control animals.
