Summary The concentrations of liver free amino acids in l-Dopa-treated and control rats were assayed by a Jeol amino acid analyzer. Subcutaneous injections of 500 mg/kg l-Dopa daily for 8 days increased the concentrations of isoleucine, methionine, threonine and tyrosine. 1000 mg/kg l-Dopa produced an even greater increase in the concentration of tyrosine and threonine in the liver as well as inducing a significant increase in hepatic-aspartic acid and serine. Only glutamic acid decreased after… Expand
