Thirty minutes after the onset of darkness, ovine pineal arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase, N-acetylserotonin, and melatonin increase 5- to 10-fold. No significant changes in hydroxyindole-O-methyltransferase, 5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid, 5-hydroxytryptophol, 5-methoxyindoleacetic acid, and 5-methoxytryptophol are detected at this time.(More)
L-5-Hydroxytryptophan (L-5-HTP) (20 or 200 mg/kg i.p.) but not L-tryptophan (500 mg/kg i.p.) loading substantially increases serum melatonin in sheep. In the present study we examined the effects of these compounds on pineal serotonin and six serotonin metabolites. L-Tryptophan failed to increase 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT; serotonin) or any of its(More)
Redshifted absorption proÐles that resemble the high-velocity circumstellar gas features in the spectrum of b Pictoris have been detected in IUE data for the 10 Myr old Herbig Be star, HD 100546, on 1995 March 7. In addition to Mg II, Si II, and other refractory species similar to those seen in b Pic, the HD 100546 spectra are rich in accreting gas proÐles(More)
