Sample text

Administration of tryptophan or 5-hydroxytryptophan at various periods during a 24-hour day caused no difference in the rate of formation of serotonin (Snyder, Axelrod and Zweig 1967). Pineal monoamine oxidase, the principal enzyme involved in serotonin metabolism, also showed no difference in activity when measured around the clock. However, CONTROL OF INDOLEAMINE METABOLISM 41 N-acetyltransferase, the enzyme that catalyses the conversion of serotonin to N-acetylserotonin (Weissbach, Redfield and Axelrod 1960) showed a marked diurnal change in activity in the rat pineal, the highest activity being present at night (D.

This suggested that the formation of new enzyme protein was involved in the synthesis of melatonin in organ culture. The addition of noradrenaline to pineal organ cultures caused a marked stimulation in the formation of melatonin (Axelrod, Shein and Wurtman 1969), N-acetylserotonin and N-acetyltransferase (Klein and Weller 1970), but not serotonin or HIOMT. Dibutyryl cyclic adenosine monophosphate also stimulated the formation of N-acetylscrotonin, N-acetyltransferase (Berg and Klein 1970) and melatonin in pineal organ cultures (Shein and Wurtman 1969; Klein et a!.
