Quantitative cytochemical analysis of the activities of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, aminopeptidase, and glutamate dehydrogenase in the brain of Wistar rats with different learning abilities revealed a difference in the level of hippocampal aminopeptidase activity. Alcohol-nonpreferring rats showed lower activity of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase in the nucleus accumbens compared with intact rats.
