METABOLISM OF SEROTONIN IN THE VERTEBRATE BRAIN


Presynaptic Control of Serotonin Release. Slices were incubated in the presence of ('3)Hserotonin (('3)H5HT) and then superfused in lucite chambers with a KrebsRinger phosphate (KRP) solution. Tritium release was induced by electrical stimulation. Mouse cerebellum. Exogenous unlabeled serotonin (5HT) decreased the basal and stimulated tritium overflow in a concentrationrelated manner, in the presence of the 5HT Ray Ban 31 uptake blocker fluoxetine. The inhibitory effect of 5HT on stimulated tritium overflow was blocked by the simultaneous administration of methiothepin but not methysergide, both being 5HT antagonists. Superfusion of the slices with a KRP Ca('2+)free solution and also in the presence of EGTA reduced the basal and Cheap Oakley Asian Fit Sunglasses stimulated tritium overflow. Under the present experimental conditions 82% of the tritium recovered during stimulation appeared to be unmetabolized ('3)H5HT. Prostaglandins E(,2) and F(,2(alpha)) did not alter the basal and stimulated tritium overflow. However norepinephrine (NE) and dibutyryl cyclic guanosine monophosphate (dbcGMP) reduced both basal and stimulated tritium overflow. Phenoxybenzamine, an (alpha) antagonist, www.cheapsunglassesstore.co.uk/ray-ban-sunglasses35/ray-ban-3137 partially www.cheapsunglassesstore.co.uk/ray-ban-sunglasses35 blocked the inhibitory effect of NE on stimulated tritium overflow. It Cheap Oakley Active Sunglasses is concluded that changes in stimulated tritium overflow reflect changes in ('3)H5HT release, that extracellular 5HT is able to inhibit action potentialinduced release of intraneuronal 5HT. This inhibition is mediated through specific receptors of probable presynaptic location. Prostaglandins E(,2) and F(,2(alpha)) do not seem to play a role in the regulation of release of www.cheapsunglassesstore.co.uk/oakley-sunglasses6/asian-fit-sunglasses14 5HT. However the marked inhibitory effect of NE www.cheapsunglassesstore.co.uk/oakley-sunglasses6/active-sunglasses13 on 5HT release appears to work by means of an (alpha) receptor, probably located on the presynaptic serotoninergic terminal. The inhibitory effect of dbcGMP on tritium overflow suggests that cGMP may mediate the presynaptic inhibitory mechanisms leading to a reduction of 5HT release. Goldfish brain. Exogenous 5HT did not alter the stimulated tritium Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses overflow, but this was reduced when the superfusion was performed in Ca('2+)free and in Ca('2+)freeEGTA conditions. Eighty % of the tritium recovered during stimulation seemed to correspond to unmetabolized 5HT. However, it differs from the mammalian system since there do not appear to be presynaptic autoreceptors in the terminals of brain serotoninergic neurones. Monoamine Oxidase (MAO) in the Goldfish Brain. Tissue homogenates were incubated in vitro and MAO activity determined fluorometrically. Harmaline, clorgyline, deprenyl and pargyline inhibited MAO activity in a concentrationrelated manner with single sigmoid inhibition curves. MAO was more sensitive to inhibition by type A inhibitors (harmaline and clorgyline) than by a type B inhibitor (deprenyl). In conclusion, these results show that goldfish MAO appears to exist as a single form, with inhibitor sensitivities indicating that it is very similar to mammalian MAO type A.
