Acute ethanol exposure stimulated serotonin2 receptor signalling in cultured astrocytes. Pretreatment with the protein kinase C inhibitor H7 significantly increased the ethanol-induced potentiation of [3H]-inositol phosphates accumulation. The increase could be explained by an augmented activation of phospholipase C. The results indicate a role of PKC for the modulation of ethanol effects on cellular signalling.
