Fos immunocytochemical studies on the neuroanatomical sites of action of acute tyrosine depletion in the rat brain.

Abstract:

RATIONALE: Acute depletion of brain tyrosine using a tyrosine-free amino acid mixture offers a nutritional approach to reduce central catecholamine function. Recent preclinical data suggest that tyrosine-free amino acid mixtures may have region-specific effects through targeting dopamine neurones. OBJECTIVES: Here we used fos immunocytochemistry to examine the neuroanatomical sites of action of a tyrosine-free amino acid mixture administered either alone or combined with amphetamine. METHODS...
