Precursors of adrenal epinephrine and norepinephrine in vivo

Journal Article

Isotopically labelled phenylalanine, tyrosine, and dihydroxyphenyalanine, in the intact rat, serve as precursors of adrenal epinephrine and norepinephrine; tyramine and phenylethylamine do not. The turnover rates of adrenal epinephrine and norepinephrine are relatively low, both having half-lives of about one week. © 1956.
