5-HIAA formation) in rat brain, but, in combination with clorgylil reduced 5-HIAA to 20-30% of control values. , 1972; Knoll and Magyar, 1972; Squires, 1972b), it has been suggest (Squires and Buus Lassen, 1975) that, in vivo, 5-HT may be converted, e. by N-methylation, to a derivative such as bufotenin which might be par deaminated by MAO-B to 5-HIAA. According to this hypothesis the MAC tryptophan syndrome would be dependent on the formation of bufotenin another N-alkylated 5-HT derivative.

The pyrogenic effects of 5-HTP and LSD in the rabbit are greatly attenuated by pretreatment with BOL (Horita and Gogerty, 1958).
