The regional distribution of pipecolic acid (PA) in newborn mouse brain, measured by a new sensitive high performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection (HPLC-EC) method, shows a two-fold difference among various areas. Diencephalon, olfactory bulb and anterior telencephalon show the highest PA levels, while the lowest PA levels are seen in mesencephalon and rhombencephalon. The pattern of regional distribution of PA is identical to the regional accumulation in brain of the… CONTINUE READING
