Schematic diagram of the model. The figure shows the reactions in the model. The rectangular boxes indicate substrates and blue ellipses contain the acronyms of enzymes or transporters. Full names of the substrates are given in TableĀ 1. Names of enzymes and transporters are as follows: Trpin, neutral amino acid transporter; DRR, dihydrobiopterin reductase; TPH, tryptophan hydroxylase; AADC, aromatic amino acid decarboxylase; MAT, vesicular monoamine transporter; SERT, 5-HT reuptake transporter; auto, 5-HT autoreceptors; MAO, monoamine oxidase; ALDH, aldehyde dehydrogenase; NET, norepinepherine transporter; DAT, dopamine transporter; OCT, organic cation transporter. Removal means uptake by capillaries or diffusion out of the system. The figure was created by H. F. Nijhout for this study
