Simulation of biogenic amine metabolism in the brain.


The metabolism of a number of biogenic amines has been simulated by using data obtained from studies of the individual enzymes from pig brain. It is shown that beta-hydroxylated amines such as noradrenaline and octopamine are metabolized primarily to the alcoholic metabolite whereas amines lacking this group [e.g. dopamine (3,4-dihydroxyphenethylamine) and… (More)
