Activity of catechol-O-methyltransferase in brain regions and adrenal gland during the oestrus cycle

Abstract

The activity of the enzyme catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) during four different phases of the oestrus cycle were determined. Brain and hypothalamus had highest level of COMT activity during oestrus phase, while at pro-oestrus it was at its lowest level. COMT activity in the adrenal gland was also modified during the four phases with the maximum level… (More)
