Regional norepinephrine (NE), dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) contents in the developing rat brain were estimated. The rate of increase in NE content was the highest in diencephalon, followed by the lower brain stem, limbic-striatum, neocortex and cerebellum. With postnatal aging, DA concentration increased markedly in(More)
Norepinephrine(NE), dopamine(DA) and serotonin(5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) contents were estimated in the different regions of the developing rat brain following guanethidine injection at the neonatal period for the purpose of determining the influence of guanethidine on development of the monoamine neuron in the brain. Despite a nonsignificant change in the(More)
Dopamine (10-4 M) and vasopressin (1 mU/ml) were found to increase the level of cyclic AMP in the perfusate of rat kidney. There were some differences in the mode of action of these two drugs. Firstly, the effect of dopamine, but not of vasopressin, was completely antagonized by spiroperidol. Secondly, the maximal response was attained within 1 min after(More)
Dopamine, apomorphine, isoproterenol and norepinephrine all increased the concentration of adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate in the rat kidney particulate preparation, which was composed of tubules, glomeruli and blood vessels. The concentrations of dopamine, apomorphine, isoproterenol and norepinephrine causing a half-maximal increase were 50, 83, 0.1 and 10(More)
