Enhancement of brain dopamine metabolism by tyrosine during immobilisation: an in vivo study using repeated cerebrospinal fluid sampling in conscious rats.


Central dopamine (DA) and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) metabolism was monitored in conscious, freely moving rats by determination of levels of the DA metabolites 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) and homovanillic acid (HVA) and the 5-HT metabolite 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) in CSF samples withdrawn repeatedly from the cisterna magna and treated… (More)
