Description

The effects of the 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor antagonists metergoline, pirenperone and pizotifen on 5-hydroxytryptamine and dopamine synthesis were determined by measuring the rate of accumulation of 5-hydroxytryptamine and 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine, respectively, after administering l-tryptophan and m-hydroxybenzylhydrazine, an inhibitor of aromatic-l-amino acid decarboxylase.
