The side chains, called dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA), have an affinity for iron.
Tyrosine is first oxidized by tyrosinase to dihydroxyphenylalanine (1-dopa), then to dopaquinone.
It is thought to be produced when tyrosine, an amino acid in the skin, is oxidized by the enzyme tyrosinase to form 3,4 dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA), which is further oxidized by UV light and the catalyst tyrosinase to form an indole derivative which polymerizes to melanin.
The modified amino acid, called dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA), has two functions.
3) This report described a liquid chromatographic electrochemical detection (LCED) (4) method for measuring plasma concentrations of catecholamines as well as dihydroxyphenylglycol (DHPG), the main deaminated metabolite of norepinephrine, dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA), the immediate precursor of dopamine, and dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), the deaminated metabolite of dopamine.
Alternatively, AADC in the carcinoid tumor may convert dihydroxyphenylalanine into dopamine, thus providing substrate for enhanced catecholamine synthesis outside the tumor.
Examples include several separation methods in which boronate columns have been combined with HPLC columns for the clinical analysis of catechol-related compounds such as epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine (118-120), dihydroxyphenylalanine (121), dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (121,122), 5-S-cysteinyldopa (123), and vanillylmandelic acid (124).
