• Bounias M (1987) Propranolol and somatostatin interactions with the hyperglycemic effects of glucagon, octopamine, noradrenaline and cAMP in worker honeybees in vivo. (springer.com)
  • It was mentioned that a decrease in InR gene expression in corpus allatum does not influence the activity of OA-dependent N-acetyltransferase (the enzyme that degrades octopamine). (deepdyve.com)
  • In mammals, octopamine may mobilize the release of fat from adipocytes (fat cells), which has led to its promotion on the internet as a slimming aid. (wikipedia.org)
  • Both plant derived and artificially produced octopamine are equally potent, and the effect largely depends on the concentration of the compound. (nootropics.net)
  • Under the trade names Epirenor, Norden, and Norfen, octopamine is also used clinically as a sympathomimetic agent. (definitions.net)
  • We investigated its effect in the antennal lobe, the first olfactory center in the brain, using calcium imaging to record background activity and odor responses before and after octopamine application. (springer.com)
  • These studies suggest that the biogenic amine octopamine (OA) represents the occurrence of sucrose in brain networks that process olfactory inputs. (springer.com)
  • It should be noted however that the structure of octopamine falls within the definition of an "amphetamine analogue" in Class C7 of the New Zealand Misuse of Drugs Act, and so would probably be considered an illegal drug if it were tested in court, although no prosecutions involving this compound have been carried out so far.

  • Increased EAG responses of tortricid moths after prolonged exposure to plant volatiles: evidence for octopamine-mediated sensitization. (semanticscholar.org)
  • In this article we are not going to talk about Ephedrine, rather Octopamine which is a new and upcoming supplement with similar effects. (redcon1online.com)
  • Octopamine mimics the influence of noepinephrine, although it causes more specific effects rather than a generalized mobilization of mental or physical reserves in your body. (nootropics.net)
  • Octopamine may also increase blood pressure significantly when combined with other stimulants, as in some weight loss supplements. (wikipedia.org)
  • Importantly, the octopamine effect was variable across glomeruli, odorants, odorant concentrations and animals, suggesting that the octopaminergic network is shaped by plasticity depending on an individual animal's history and possibly other factors. (springer.com)
  • Octopamine also plays a role in mollusks, though the role of octopamine has only been examined in the central nervous system of the model organism, the pond snail. (chemeurope.com)
  • Octopamine acts as neurohormone including desensitization of sensory inputs, influence on learning and memory, or regulation of the mood of the animal in the central nervous system. (abmole.com)
  • However, the released fat is likely to be promptly taken up into other cells, and there is no evidence that octopamine facilitates weight loss. (wikipedia.org)
  • The largest appetite increase due to the starvation treatment was within the forager age class and this corresponded with an increase in octopamine levels in the brain along with a decline in hemolymph sugar levels. (springer.com)
  • It is thought that Octopamine may prevent the breakdown of protein for energy, rather promoting fat burning for energy. (redcon1online.com)
  • Therefore, there may be a pathway in forager bees via octopamine responsible for their precise precipitous regulation of appetite, but to determine cause and effect relationships further investigation is needed. (springer.com)
  • Octopamine was investigated as a potential supplement due to its prominent abilities to generate considerable caloric consumption and heat in the body. (nootropics.net)
  • The action of octopamine is limited to increasing thermogenesis or caloric consumption, and facilitating a better mental and physical drive by providing more energy. (nootropics.net)
  • We hypothesized that the hormonal effect might be indirect, and one neuromodulator candidate, which might serve as a mediator, is octopamine (OA). (ovid.com)
