Drugs and molecules that modulate DA transmission
1) phenylalanine: amino acid that can be converted to tyrosine by
enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase. 2) alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine: blocks tyrosine hydroxylase. 3) carbidopa: __________________________________________ 4) reserpine: ______________________________________. 5) conotoxin: voltage-gated Ca++ channel blocker. 6) bromocriptine, pergolide: ________________________________. 7) haloperidol: D2 dopamine receptor antagonist. 8) amphetamine, cocaine, methylphenidate: block reuptake of DA into .
presynaptic terminal (also facilitate release from synaptic vesicles). 9) deprenyl: inhibitor of monoamine oxidase type B.
