The effect of some decarboxylase inhibitors on striatal tyramines in the mouse

Neuropharmacology
A V Juorio

Abstract

The administration of carbidopa (5-50 mg/kg), a peripheral L-aromatic aminoacid decarboxylase inhibitor, significantly increased striatal tyramines; maximal effects were observed at 2-4 hr after treatment. Benserazide produced similar effects. The drug, NSD 1034, that inhibits both central and peripheral decarboxylase, produced a dose-dependent reduction in striatal p-tyramine; in contrast, concentrations of m-tyramine were increased by the smaller doses (2-20 mg/kg) and reduced by the larger dose (400 mg/kg). The results support the view that the tyramines are formed within the brain by decarboxylation of their parent aminoacids but by different mechanisms.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
