Molecular Formula: C8H11NO   Molecular Weight: 137.17904   InChIKey: DZGWFCGJZKJUFP-UHFFFAOYSA-N
An indirect sympathomimetic. Tyramine does not directly activate adrenergic receptors, but it can serve as a substrate for adrenergic uptake systems and monoamine oxidase so it prolongs the actions of adrenergic transmitters. It also provokes transmitter release from adrenergic terminals. Tyramine may be a neurotransmitter in some invertebrate nervous systems.   From: MeSH
