The presence of the so‐called trace amines 2‐phenylethylamine, m‐tyramine, p‐tyramine, m‐octopamine, p‐octopamine and tryptamine in the mammalian central nervous system has been known for several decades. Despite much initial interest, these amines have largely been thought of as little more than metabolic by‐products. The recent description of a family of mammalian trace amine receptors has, however, seen a resurgence of interest in the physiological role of this class of compounds. Although… Expand
The mysterious trace amines: Protean neuromodulators of synaptic transmission in mammalian brain
TLDR
A substantial body of evidence suggests that the trace amines may play very significant roles in the coordination of biogenic amine-based synaptic physiology, and its association with major human disorders of affect and cognition. Expand
Methods of Trace Amine Analysis in Mammalian Brain
Abstract Trace amines including arylalkylamines, phenylethylamine, tyramine, tryptamine, octopamine, phenylethanolamine, and synephrine are present in the nervous system at very minute concentrationsExpand
Electrophysiological Effects of Trace Amines on Mesencephalic Dopaminergic Neurons
TLDR
Three important new aspects of TAs action have recently emerged: inhibition of firing due to increased release of dopamine; reduction of D2 and GABAB receptor-mediated inhibitory responses (excitatory effects due to disinhibition); and a direct activation of GIRK channels by TA1 receptors which produce cell membrane hyperpolarization.

Trace Amines and the Trace Amine-Associated Receptor 1: Pharmacology, Neurochemistry, and Clinical Implications
TLDR
TAAR1 is uniquely positioned to exert direct control over DA and 5-HT neuronal firing and release, which has profound implications for understanding the pathophysiology of, and therefore designing more efficacious therapeutic interventions for, a range of neuropsychiatric disorders that involve aminergic dysregulation. Expand
Trace Amines and Their Relevance to Neurological Disorders
TLDR
This commentary focuses on the possible link among monoaminergic neurotransmitters, trace amines, and neurological disorders, having a common symptom of depression. Expand
The vascular effects of trace amines and amphetamines.

TLDR
The cardiovascular pharmacology of this diverse group of amines, their structures and uses and their endogenous synthesis and metabolism are described and their mechanisms of action are considered. Expand
Trace amine‐associated receptors and their ligands
TLDR
Pharmacological investigations in vitro show that many TAAR subtypes may not respond to p‐tyramine, β‐phenylethylamine, tryptamine or octopamine, suggesting the existence of additional endogenous ligands, and genetic linkage studies show a significant association between the TAAR gene family locus and susceptibility to schizophrenia or bipolar affective disorder. Expand
Trace Amine-Associated Receptors as Emerging Therapeutic Targets
TLDR
It is expected that further characterization of the functional roles and biochemical properties of TAARs and identification of endogenous and exogenous ligands will eventually promote these receptors as an attractive class of targets to correct monoaminergic processes that could be dysfunctional in a host of disorders of brain and periphery. Expand
Chapter 3 – Synthesis and Neurochemistry of Trace Amines*
Trace amines are endogenous compounds, found in the nervous system of all species, and consist of 2-phenylethylamine, p-tyramine, p-octopamine, and tryptamine. In vertebrates synthesis occurs by theExpand

TLDR
A large earlier literature asserted their role as endogenous neuromodulators of monoaminergic excitability and neurotransmission, challenging the more conventional view of the TAs as metabolic byproducts that interfere with classical monoamine modulatory functions. Expand

TLDR
Using a degenerate PCR approach, 15 G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) from human and rodent tissues are identified and it is demonstrated that two of these receptors bind and/or are activated by trace amines. Expand
2‐Phenylethylamine: A Modulator of Catecholamine Transmission in the Mammalian Central Nervous System?
TLDR
The neurochemical, neuropharmacological, and neurophysiological findings that lead to propose that PE is a neuromodulator of catecholamine neurotransmission in the CNS are reviewed. Expand
Brain Trace Amines: Mapping Studies and Effects of Mesencephalic Lesions
The brain trace amine concentration has been estimated by different research groups and extends over a wide range of values; the general tendency, however, has been towards the confirmation of theExpand
Amphetamine, 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, lysergic acid diethylamide, and metabolites of the catecholamine neurotransmitters are agonists of a rat trace amine receptor.
TLDR
The discovery and pharmacological characterization of a rat G protein-coupled receptor that stimulates the production of cAMP when exposed to the trace amines p-tyramine, beta-phenethylamine, tryptamine, and octopamine and the discovery that amphetamines are potent rTAR1 agonists suggests that the effects of these widely used drugs may be mediated in part by this receptor as well as their previously characterized targets, the neurotransmitter transporter proteins.

TLDR
The object of the present study has been the identification and quantification of fl-phenylethylamine, p-TYramine, m-tyramine and tryptamine in the brain of domestic fowl and to investigate the changes produced by the administration of a monoamine oxidase inhibitor. Expand
Phenylethylamine in the CNS: effects of monoamine oxidase inhibiting drugs, deuterium substitution and lesions and its role in the neuromodulation of catecholaminergic neurotransmission.
TLDR
Following iontophoresis PE has been shown to exhibit indirect sympathomimetic effects but in addition when applied at low currents concurrently with DA or NA it causes post synaptically a substantial potentiation in the actions of the latter amines. Expand
Evidence for the presence of m-tyramine, p-tyramine, tryptamine, and phenylethylamine in the rat brain and several areas of the human brain.
TLDR
Postmortem changes in human brain amines are discussed in relation to those occurring postmortem in the rat brain, in which phenylethylamine, p-tyramine, and tryptamine have been shown to increase to levels greater than those prevailing in vivo. Expand
Following the trace of elusive amines
TLDR
The classical biogenic amines (serotonin, noradrenaline, dopamine, and histamine) play important roles as neuromodulators and bind to specific receptor proteins on both presynaptic and postsynaptic cells to alter the signaling of the fast neurotransmitter-gated ion channels. Expand
The presence of tyramine and related monoamines in the nerve cord and some other tissue of the lobster, Homarus americanus
TLDR
The finding that the administration of an aromatic-L-amino acid decarboxylase inhibitor leads to a decrease of p-tyramine gives further evidence that this amine is synthesized from p-TYrosine, which is also found in high concentrations in the lobster nerve cord. Expand
The effects of administration of monoamine oxidase‐B inhibitors on rat striatal neurone responses to dopamine
TLDR
The results suggest that PE can act as a neuromodulator of dopaminergic responses and that MAO‐B inhibitors may potentiate neuronal responses to dopamine via the indirect mechanism of elevation of PE following MAO'B inhibition. Expand
