In vitro effects of cyclic AMP, L-dopa and 6-hydroxydopamine on rat brain dopamine - beta - hydroxylase
Srivastava Madhulika, NK Kapoor
Dopamine-f-hydroxylase (DBH activity of rat brain was found to be stimulated by cyclic tand L- DOPA. The stimulation of enzyme activity increased with increasing concentration of the activators. 6 -hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) caused an inhibition of brain DBH activity which may be due to the degeneration of adrenergic neurons. .The inhibitory effect was partially prevented in presence of cAMP or GDOPA.
