The rates of disappearance of dopamine, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) and homovanillic acid (HVA) in the brain of rats treated with the tyrosine hydroxylase inhibitor alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine were measured. Levels of dopamine. DOPAC and HVA in tissue were quantified in the striatum, nucleus accumbens and frontal cortex of the rat by means of high pressure liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection. Rats were sacrificed 1, 2 or 3 hr after the administration of alpha-methyl-p… CONTINUE READING
