Certain substances, 2-bromolysergic acid diethylamide, dimethyltryptamine (3-(2-dimethylaminoethyl)indole), 2-methyldimethyltryptamine (3-(2-dimethylaminoethyl)-2-methylindole), and 5-benzyloxydimethyltryptamine (5-benzyloxy-3-(2-dimethylaminoethyl)indole), antagonize the effects of 5-hydroxytryptamine on the rat fundus strip more than those of tryptamine. These substances have been tested for their ability to inhibit the oxidation of tryptamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine by suspensions of guinea-pig liver and rat fundus. 2-Bromolysergic acid diethylamide has virtually no inhibitory activity and it is doubtful if the others produce any significant inhibition of amine oxidase in the concentrations which antagonize the effects of 5-hydroxytryptamine more than those of tryptamine. It seems that the differential character of the blocking action of these compounds should be ascribed either to interference with the transport of tryptamine (but not 5-hydroxytryptamine) through the cell wall, coupled with the block of a receptor common to both tryptamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine, or to the existence of separate tryptamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine receptors.The amine oxidases of the guinea-pig liver and rat fundus appear to be a mixture of at least two types of enzyme, one of which has a higher affinity for 5-hydroxytryptamine than the other and is more susceptible to inhibition by 2-methyldimethyltryptamine.
