Qualitative analysis by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) of the auxins present in the root, cotyledons and epicotyl of 3-dold etiolated pea (Pisum sativum L., cv. Alaska) seedlings has shown that all three organs contain phenylacetic acid (PAA), 3-indoleacetic acid (IAA) and 4-chloro-3-indoleacetic acid (4Cl-IAA). In addition, 3-indolepropionic(More)
The behavioural and neurochemical effects of m-tyrosine and a monoamine oxidase inhibitor in the rat are described. Systemic injections of m-tyrosine (50-150 mg/kg) 30 min after the administration of pargyline (75 mg/kg) produced intense behavioural stimulation which was not evident after injection of either compound alone. The behavioural syndrome induced(More)
The major in vivo metabolites of 1-phenyl-2-(n-propylamino)propane (N-n-propylamphetamine) in the rat were phenolic compounds, identified as 1-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-(n-propylamino)-propane (metabolite A) and 1-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-2-(n-propylamino)propane (metabolite B) by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, and by comparison with authentic synthetic(More)
Methods for the separation, identification, and quantitation, of cannabinoids present in hashish have been developed. These methods include high-pressure liquid chromatographic and gas-liquid chromatographic separation of cannabinol, delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol, delta 8-tetrahydrocannabinol, and cannabidiol as well as their tau-butyidimethylsilyl either(More)
The concentration of dopamine in striatal slices obtained from rats treated with an MAO inhibitor was increased significantly by a 50-minute incubation in oxygenated Krebs buffer at 37 degrees C. Administration of alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine did not antagonize this small increase in dopamine. The extent of the incubation-induced increase was much greater in(More)
The concentrations of β-phenylethylamine,p-tyramine,m-tyramine,m-octopamine and tryptamine in the ganglia or foot muscle ofHelix aspersa range from <0.6 to 11 ng/g.p-Octopamine levels are higher in ganglia (327 ng/g) than in foot muscle (4.1 ng/g). Dopamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine range from 840 to 2710 ng/g while their acid metabolites,(More)
