Abstract: A study of the acute effects of isatin, an endogenous MAO inhibitor related to tribulin, on rat brain serotonergic function was undertaken. A single dose of isatin significantly increased 5-HT concentrations in the hypothalamus and cortex but did not significantly alter 5-HIAA concentrations. Synaptosomal 5-HT uptake was unaffected but there was a trend for the number of 3H-ketanserin binding sites was to be decreased. The results of the study are discussed in terms of the relationship of isatin to tribulin and their possible causal role in stress.
