Tyrosine hydroxylase is subject to feedback inhibition by dopamine and
norepinephrine, thus providing internal control of the synthetic process. Once
dopamine is synthesized, it is transported into the vesicle by the VMAT. Here the
Norepinephrine, epinephrine, and small amounts of dopamine are synthesized
by the adrenal medulla. Cats and some other species secrete mainly
norepinephrine, but in dogs and humans, most of the catecholamine output in the
In the medulla, norepinephrine and epinephrine are stored in granules with ATP.
The granules also contain chromogranin A (see Chapter 7). Secretion is initiated
by acetylcholine released from the preganglionic neurons that innervate the ...
