Abstract The effect of ethanol on synaptosomal free calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i) and 45Ca2+ uptake was studied in vitro. Synaptosomes were prepared from forebrains of adult rats and incubated in the presence of ethanol 50 500 mM. [Ca2+]i determined by means of the Ca2+-sensitive dye, fura-2, was increased by ethanol in polarized and depolarized synaptosomes, whereas 45Ca2+ uptake was decreased. The results suggest that ethanol may influence neuronal calcium homeostasis by increasing rather than decreasing [Ca2+]i.
