(3,4-dihydroxy-L-phenylalanine) is an intermediate in dopamine
- In clinical
use, Levodopa (INN) is administered in the management of
- L-Dopa is
also used as a component in marine adhesives used by pelagic life.
levodopa has entered the central nervous system (CNS), it is
metabolized to dopamine by aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase.
- L-DOPA is
produced from the amino acid tyrosine by the enzyme tyrosine
Dopamine is formed by the decarboxylation of L-DOPA.
- L-DOPA can
be directly metabolized by catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT)
to 3-O-methyldopa (3-OMD) and then further to vanillactic acid.
levodopa and its precursor amino acid L-tyrosine are precursors
to the biological pigment melanin.
- The enzyme
tyrosinase catalyzes the oxidation of L-dopa to the reactive
intermediate dopaquinone, which reacts further, eventually
leading to melanin oligomers.
