On the presence of dihydroxyphenylalanine decarboxylase in nerves

  • 7 Accesses

  • 21 Citations

Zusammenfassung

Durchtrennung des Rückenmarks führt zu einer Verminderung der Aktivität des Enzymsl-3,4-Dihydroxyphenylalanin-decarboxylase (DOPA-Decarboxylase) in den kaudalen Teilen um 75% (in-vivo-Werte) bis 95% (in-vitro-Werte). Die Decarboxylaseaktivität in der Rattenmilz wird nach Exzision des Ganglion Coeliacum ebenfalls erheblich vermindert. Man kann daher annehmen, dass die DOPA-Decarboxylase in den absteigenden Rückenmarksnerven und in den sympathischen Nerven der Milz vorkommt.
