Abstract:

Large amounts of dopamine are taken up by the amine storage granules of the cow adrenal medulla when the granules are incubated at 31 C in a solution containing dopamine. At this temperature, the amine accumulates even against an apparent concentration gradient but at O C only small amounts--if any at all--are incorporated. The amine seems to be bound in the granules but is released on osmotic lysis of the granules. Author
