Rapid desensitization of dopamine release induced by neurotensin and neurotensin fragments.


Neurotensin (NT), a tridecapeptide, induced a concentration-dependent release of dopamine (DA) from the striatum. In addition, NT8-13 and Nacetyl-NT8-13, the carboxy-terminal-containing hexapeptides, were much more effective as DA releasers than the amino-terminal, NT1-6 peptide. The potency and efficacy of NT in inducing DA release was markedly enhanced by… (More)
