Trans-striatal dialysis coupled to reverse phase high performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection: a new method for the study of the in vivo release of endogenous dopamine and metabolites.

Abstract

A method for the estimation in rats of the in vivo release and metabolism of dopamine (DA) is described. The method is based on the dialysis principle and consists of inserting transversally in the striatum a thin (0.2 mm) dialysis tube (Amicon Vitafiber) which is then perfused with Ringer. The Ringer, flowing at a constant rate of 2 microliters/min in the… (More)
