Comparison of 1-methyl-4-(p-chlorophenyl)-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine, 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) and p-chloroamphetamine as monoamine depletors.


1-Methyl-4-(p-chlorophenyl)-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (PC-MPTP) failed to mimic the effects of MPTP in producing persistent depletion of striatal dopamine and its metabolites in mice one week after the last of four daily doses. MPTP was given at 20 mg/kg, whereas PC-MPTP was given at doses up to 80 mg/kg. In rats, p-chloroamphetamine (PCA) given in a… (More)
