The basal and 50 mM K+-stimulated release of m-tyramine (mTA), p-tyramine (pTA), tryptamine (TR) and phenylethylamine (PE) from striatal slices obtained from rats pretreated with a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) was investigated. A K+-stimulated release of mTA and pTA was observed, but K+ did not stimulate either TR or PE release. The latter two amines, therefore, are unlikely to be conventional neurotransmitters in the rat striatum. The release of endogenous striatal pTA from control rats… CONTINUE READING
