Abstract

Since tyrosine hydroxylase, the rate-limiting enzyme in catecholamine synthesis, is involved in the regulation of dopaminergic function in the rat, the authors studied the effects of PCP on tyrosine hydroxylase activity. The results suggest that PCP stimulates the activity of tyrosine hydroxylase by releasing DA from a reserpine-sensitive site, and under the described conditions this pool (probably vesicular) normally contributes to the tonic inhibition of this enzyme.
