Role of monoamine oxidase-B in medroxyprogesterone acetate (17-acetoxy-6 alpha-methyl-4-pregnene-3, 20-dione) induced changes in brain dopamine levels of rats.


The effect of medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) on brain monoamine levels and monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity was studied in adult, healthy, non-pregnant female rats. MpA was injected in a single dose of 100 mg/kg i.m. Dopamine (DA), noradrenaline (NA), 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) levels and MAO activity were estimated fluorometrically in rat brian. No… (More)
