Metabolite Identification
Common Name 3-Methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylethyleneglycol sulfate
Description 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylethyleneglycol sulfate (MHPG-SO4) is the major metabolite of noradrenaline in serum. Chronic schizophrenics have lower serum levels than healthy individuals. Treatment of both groups with 7 daily 3-mg doses of Haloperidol caused similar decreases in MHPG-SO4 concentration. (PMID 7343757 Link_out). In human urine, constitutes 44% of the total 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylethylene glycol. (PMID 7379456 Link_out).
