Tryptophan and serotonin turnover rate in the brain of genetically hyperammonemic mice.


An investigation was made into the effects of hyperammonemia on the metabolism of brain serotonin (5-HT). The animal model used was the sparse fur (spf) mouse, which possesses an inborn error of the urea cycle, i.e. an abnormal form of ornithine transcarbamylase. Several indoles were measured in brain and plasma using liquid chromatography with… (More)
