“A mass fragmentographic assay of 3-methoxytyramine in rat brain”.
J Neurochem. 1976 Sep 21;27(3):795-8.
Mass fragmentographic method for the measurement of 3-methoxytyramine. a metabolite
of dopamine formed after its neuronal release, is described. This method allows the assay of this dopamine metabolite in the picogram range, thus utilizing only few milligrams of brain areas containing dopaminergic neurons. Moreover, the method is simple and possesses the high specificity intrinsic to mass fragmentography.
