The effects of acute physiological stressors (5 s tail pinch, handling and forced swimming at +25 and +5 degrees C for 3 min each) on serotonin (5-HT) release in the mouse brain were investigated using in vivo microdialysis. The extracellular 5-HT levels were determined by a newly developed highly-sensitive and selective high-performance liquid(More)
A high-sensitive liquid chromatographic method based on precolumn derivatization and fluorescence detection allowing simultaneous determination of serotonin (5-HT), noradrenaline (NA) and dopamine (DA) in brain microdialysis samples is described. 5-HT, NA and DA were derivatized with benzylamine and 1,2-diphenylethylenediamine in the presence of potassium(More)
A microbore column liquid chromatographic method for the simultaneous determination of norepinephrine (NE), serotonin (5-HT), and 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid (5HIAA) in microdialysis samples from rat brain is described. The method is based on precolumn derivatization of NE, 5HT, and 5HIAA with benzylamine in the presence of potassium hexacyanoferrate(III)(More)
A highly selective and sensitive method for the simultaneous determination of 5-hydroxyindoles and catechols (serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine and related compounds) by high-performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection is described. The method is based on the two-step precolumn derivatization of 5-hydroxyindoles and catechols with(More)
A highly selective and sensitive column liquid chromatographic method for fluorescence determination of serotonin (5-HT), dopamine (DA), noradrenaline (NA) and their related metabolites 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid (5-HIAA) and 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) following derivatization with benzylamine and 1,2-diphenylethylenediamine (DPE) is(More)
A microbore column liquid chromatographic method is described for the determination of norepinephrine (NE) in microdialysis samples from rat brain. The method is based on precolumn derivatization of NE with benzylamine in the presence of potassium hexacyanoferrate(III) resulting in a highly fluorescent and stable benzoxazole derivative. Typically, a(More)
Recently, basophiles, especially beta cells, of the anterior pituitary have been generally accepted as being the site of TSH production (Zeck wer, '38a, b; Griesbach, '41; Griesbach and Purves, '45; Purves and Griesb .ach, '46a, 51a, b; Salter, '50; Halmi, '51 , '52a,b; Halmi and Bogdanove, '51 ; Hal m i and G u d e , '54), although some authors are(More)
An improved high-performance liquid-chromatographic (HPLC) assay for the simultaneous determination of serotonin (5-HT) and 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid (5-HIAA) in human urine is reported. Following the automated precolumn derivatization of urinary 5-HT and 5-HIAA with benzylamine, the derivatives are separated by isocratic elution on a reversed-phase C18(More)
