High AADC activity has also been found in the pineal gland, a tissue rich in melatonin. The cerebral cortex has generally been found to contain very low AADC activity. In tissues such as the cerebellar cortex, cerebral and cerebellar white matter AADC activity has been found very low or abundant. Additionally, in the primate brain the distribution of newly synthesized serotonin and dopamine following administration of the amine precursors 5-hydroxytryptophan and L-DOPA in vivo, correlates closely to the distribution of AADC found in vitro (Lloyd et al.

From a theoretical point of view this is of course misleading. Once the carboxylic group is lost the radiolabel will leave the brain by the following ways: 1. by diffusion of the resulting amine 2. by diffusion or via specific transport systems for the labelled amine metabolites. Until now there has been no attempts to estimate the impact of this efflux on the results obtained from kinetic modelling. However, indirect evidence indicate the unidirectional model being an acceptable approximation.
