Abstract

The rate of formation of DM in the guinea pig caudate nucleus was estimated from the rate of conversion of radioactive tyrosine to DM and was found to be 32 nmole/g/h. The formation and elimination of HVA and Dopac from caudate was estimated from their accumulation after treatment with probenecid. Each acid was formed at a rate of about 15 nmole/g/h. A larger dose of probenecid was required to prevent the transport of Dopac from caudate than to prevent the transport of HVA.
