Carrier-mediated outward transport of dopamine from adrenergic varicosities of the vas deferens of reserpine-pretreated rats


In vasa deferentia of reserpine-pretreated rats a carrier-mediated (i. e., desipramine-sensitive) outward trAnsport of endogenous dopamine was induced by either tyramine or ouabain. The dopamine taking part in the efflux induced by tyramine (and the concomitant efflux of DOPAC) was derived from ongoing synthesis of dopamine. Inhibition of MAO trebled the… (More)
