The basal ganglia is a major center for the production of dopamine, a monoamine neurotransmitter
Effect of aspartame on oxidative stress and monoamine neurotransmitter
levels lipopolysaccharide -treated mice.
Thirdly, drugs that acutely increase monoamine neurotransmitters
, such as cocaine and amphetamines, are not effective in depression.
Peripheral measurements of monoamine neurotransmitters
(serotonin and the catecholamines, dopamine and norepinephrine) and their metabolites in either plasma or urine have been used most often to look at mechanisms in hypotension or hypertension, and as screening procedures to detect and monitor neuroblastoma and pheochromocytoma (1-3).
This enzyme degrades monoamine neurotransmitters
after their reabsorption into the presynaptic neuron.
in invertebrates and vertebrates: an examination of the diverse enzymatic pathways utilized to synthesize and inactivate biogenic amines.
The present study suggests that SCLPN may function as an antidepressant, and the antidepressant-like effects of SCLPN may be mediated by modulation of brain monoamine neurotransmitters
and intracellular [Ca.
From Table 2, compared with that of the control group, we can see that the contents of monoamine neurotransmitter
in rat brain, including 5-HT and NE were decreased significantly due to the nitroglycerin treatment in the model group, while the contents of 5-HIAA and DA were no significant change after the treatment.
Interactions between monoamine neurotransmitters
system including 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), noradrenaline (NA) and dopamine (DA) in the brain along with their specific reuptake and receptor protein has gain so much interest in the spectrum of antidepressant studies (Yi et al.
Lead researcher, assistant professor Xenia Gonda, said: "Biochemical studies have shown that the season in which you are born has an influence on certain monoamine neurotransmitters
, such as dopamine and serotonin, which is detectable even in adult life.
Although experiments on mice showed an association between post-stroke depression and low levels of monoamine neurotransmitters
and FGF-2, the link between FGF and depression is not clearly established yet (16).
2] It inhibits the uptake of monoamine neurotransmitters
into storage granules, resulting in the metabolism of these neurotransmitters by monoamine oxidase.
Comment: As an essential cofactor for enzymes involved in the production of monoamine neurotransmitters
and the metabolism of phenylalanine, BH4 may play an important role in neuropsychiatric function.
MAOls work by blocking the enzyme monoamine oxidase which breaks down the monoamine neurotransmitters
(Smith et al.
Attempts can be made to either lower elevated levels of MAO-A with selected antagonist drugs, or to increase the concentration of monoamine neurotransmitters
that can elevate mood.
