Abstract:

A fluorimetric method for the determination of small amounts of 3-methoxytyramine, MT, in tissues is described. After separation on ion-exchange column, MT is converted to a strongly fluorescent compound. Interference of dopamine DA, is eliminated either by column separation or differential oxidation. MT is demonstrated in brain of some mammals indicating a role of catecholO-methyl transferase in the degradation of DA in this tissue. Author
