Interaction between pargyline, a monoamine oxidase inhibitor, and beta-adrenergic receptors in the rat pineal gland.

Abstract

The hypothesis that pargyline, a monoamine oxidase inhibitor, may interact with pineal beta-adrenergic receptors to increase N-acetyltransferase (NAT) activity and, thereby, melatonin content was tested in intact and superior cervical ganglionectomized (SCGX) rats some of which were also treated with the tryptophan hydroxylase inhibitor para… (More)
