Incubation of [3H]-tyrosine methionine5-enkephalin (MET) with human brain preparations (100,000g supernatant; sections of the limbic system, thalamus, basal ganglia, cerebellum, and cortex) results in its rapid and complete degradation; over 95% of the initial labeled tyrosine is recovered as the free aminoacid within 10 min. Results show a considerable(More)
After 10-minute incubation of [3H]-tyrosine methionine-enkephalin (MET) with 100,000 x g supernatant from select brain regions of patients with chronic schizophrenia (n = 3), essentially all of the labeled tyrosine was recovered as the free amino acid. Initial velocity and half-life of MET degradation obtained from different brain areas (limbic system,(More)
