Dopamine-beta-Hydroxylase (DBH) activity is decreased and tyrosine hydroxylase activity is increased in three brain regions (hypothalamus, putamen, and caudate nucleus) from victims of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) when compared to values in the same regions from infants dying of known causes. No stastically significant difference was detected in tyrosine hydroxylase activity in the thalamus and brain stem although DBH was 20% lower in the former region of the SIDS victims. Two other… CONTINUE READING
