Disposition of norepinephrine and epinephrine in duodenum of White Leghorn chicken(WLH)
JS Punia, BD Garg
Disposition of (-)-norepinephrine (NE) and (-)-epinephrine (E) in duodenum of chicken (WLH) was studied using oil immersion technique. The relative rate of different routes of disposition of catecholamines was in the following order: for (-)- NE, COMT ( MAO ( uptake;! (uptake1; for (-)-E, COMT a uptakes ( uptake1 ( MAO. The role of enzymatic degraduation is almost equal to that of uptake processes for both (-)-NE and (-)-E. The uptake mechanisms do not appear to be an efficient route of disposition of catecholamines in this tissue.
