Pineal indoles: significance and measurement.

Despite intensive investigation, particularly over the past fifteen years, many aspects of pineal function with respect to mammalian physiology remain obscure. Much of this work is reviewed and particular attention focussed on indole metabolism within the pineal gland. Emphasis is placed on the development of new analytical techniques with special reference to high performance liquid chromatography coupled with electrochemical detection. The growth in knowledge regarding pineal indole synthesis which can be attributed to the use of this technique is discussed. The possibility that pineal indoles other than melatonin may function as hormones or neuromodulators is considered. A functional role for 5-hydroxytryptophol as a neuromodulator, possibly associated with diffuse neuroendocrine function (amine precursor, uptake and decarboxylation, APUD) is suggested.[1]
