Sex differences in the amphetamine stimulated release of catecholamines from rat striatal tissue in vitro.

Sex and estrous cycle-related differences in the amphetamine (AMT)-stimulated release (pg/mg/min) of catecholamines (CA) from rat striatal and mediobasal hypothalamus (MBH) fragments were measured in an in vitro perifusion system. In striatal tissue from intact males, AMT stimulated the release of both norepinephrine (NE) and dopamine (DA). The AMT… (More)
