The effects of noscapine, a phthalide isoquinoline alkaloid, on dopamine biosynthesis and tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) activity in PC12 cells were investigated. Noscapine showed 74.6% inhibition on dopamine content in PC12 cells at a concentration of 20 muM. IC(50) of noscapine was 6.8 muM. TH activity was inhibited by the treatment of noscapine in PC12 cells (20.9% inhibition at 20 muM). Therefore, the inhibition of TH activity by noscapine might be involved in at least one component of the reduction of dopamine biosynthesis in PC12 cells.
