Abstract

A tetra-peptide has been isolated from the urines of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) that we could not find in control urines. The tetra-peptide (G-S-E-N) stimulates the uptake of serotonin into platelets. The peptide may explain why serotonin is increased in platelets of ADHD children.
