A procedure for the quantitative evaluation of m-tyramine in mammalian tissues is described. It involves isolation of the amine by ion-exchange chromatography, followed by conversion to the dansyl derivative, chromatographic separation, and quantitation by the mass spectrometric integrated ion current technique using an isotopically labelled internal(More)
Using a new ultrasensitive method the trace biogenic amines, phenylethylamine, meta-tyramine and para-tyramine have been quantitated in brain regions obtained from a single rat. Phenylethylamine concentrations in ng/g wet tissue (mean +/- std. error) were as follows: caudate 2.71 +/- 0.73, hypothalamus 0.45 +/- 0.15, cerebellum 0.09 +/- 0.02, olfactory bulb(More)
Behavioral and pharmacological effects of oral administration of L-deprenyl in the dog are described. Spontaneous behavior is unaffected at doses below 3 mg/kg while at higher doses there was stereotypical responding. There was evidence of improved cognitive function in animals chronically treated with a 1 mg/kg dose but the effectiveness varied(More)
A reaction of the biogenic amines 5-hydroxytryptamine, dopamine, histamine, p-tyramine, beta-phenylethylamine and tryptamine with components of cigarette smoke was observed. The adducts formed from 5-hydroxytryptamine and beta-phenylethylamine were purified by chromatographic procedures and identified by high resolution mass spectrometry. The structures of(More)
