Comparative ontogenesis of brain tryptamine, serotonin, and tryptophan.

Abstract

The pattern of ontogenetic development of tryptophan (TP), tryptamine (T), indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT; serotonin), and 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid (5-HIAA) in the brains of rats aged 1-45 days is presented. Analysis of the five components in each brain allows the calculation of the acid/amine and amine/amino acid ratios. These… (More)
