The levels of 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) and free and total 5-hydroxytryptophol (5-HTOL) in human and rat brain regions and plasma were determined by a specific capillary column gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric method. The human brains were obtained 2–3 hourspost mortem, and the levels of 5-HIAA were in the range of 0.48–31.3 nmoles/g in the(More)
The serotonin metabolite 5-hydroxytryptophol was determined in cerebrospinal fluid and urine of alcoholics and healthy subjects, by a glass capillary gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric method. The urinary excretion rate (14.6±2.9 pmoles/μmoles creatinine) and urine (109±20 pmoles/ml) and cerebrospinal fluid (4.12±0.21 pmoles/ml) concentrations in(More)
For a smooth projective variety X and a line bundle L on X there are various notions for measuring the local positivity of L at a point x ∈ X . Two such measures are the dimension of the k-osculating space at x and the Seshadri constat at x. The precise nature of the interplay between these two notions is in general an open question. Our main result gives a(More)
A capillary column gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric method was used to identify and quantitate 6-hydroxy-1-methyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-beta-carboline (6OMTHBC) in rat. The excretion rate in urine was 0.73 +/- 0.20 nmoles per 24 hr and in faeces 0.18 +/- 0.03 nmoles per 24 hr. In urine, about 90% of the 6OMTHBC was in a conjugated form, whereas in faeces(More)
A glass capillary gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric method for the analysis of 6-hydroxy-1-methyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-beta-carboline in urine, plasma and blood platelets was developed. The method involves the use of a deuterated analogue as internal standard, addition of semicarbazide, extraction with methylene chloride and formation of(More)
The occurrence and concentration of the four 5-methoxyindoles: 5-methoxytryptamine, 5-methoxytryptophol, 5-methoxyindole-3-acetic acid and melatonin in the pineal gland of pig, cow, sheep and rat was investigated. The analytical method involved the use of deuterated analogues as internal standards and capillary column gas chromatography — mass spectrometry.(More)
A gas chromatography-mass spectrometry method is described for the identification and quantitation of 6-hydroxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-beta-carboline (6OHTHBC). During the analysis of 6OHTHBC in human platelets, the artifactual formation of 6OHTHBC was observed and shown to be due to the presence of formaldehyde in both organic solvents and in platelet(More)
In this paper we study multidimensional persistence modules [5, 13] via what we call tame functors and noise systems. A noise system leads to a pseudo-metric topology on the category of tame functors. We show how this pseudo-metric can be used to identify persistent features of compact multidimensional persistence modules. To count such features we(More)
The effect of various pharmacological treatments on the levels of free and total 5-hydroxytryptophol (5-HTOL) and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) in rat brain were investigated using a gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric technique. The disappearance of 5-HTOL following monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibition induced by pargyline was more rapid (t1/2 10–15(More)
