Salsolinol (1-methyl-6,7-dihydroxy-TIQ) is the condensation product of DA with acetaldehyde. 36 GERALD COHEN STUDIES WITH THE ADRENAL MEDULLA 1. Synthesis of TIQs Fresh cow adrenal glands were perfused in retrograde fashion with isotonic solutions at 37°C. One grand served as a control and this was perfused with isotonic buffer, while the experimental gland was perfused with buffer containing acetaldehyde or formaldehyde. After one hour, the adrenal medulla was homogenized with acidified ethanol to extract the catecholamines and TIQs.
