|Shelf Life||18 months from date of despatch.|
|Other Names||Aromatic-L-amino-acid decarboxylase, AADC, 188.8.131.52, DOPA decarboxylase, DDC, DDC|
|Target/Specificity||ABD11072 recognises DOPA decarboxylase (aromatic-L-amino acid decarboxylase, DDC), an enzyme that catalyses the decarboxylation of L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) to dopamine, L-5-hydroxytryptophan to serotonin and L-tryptophan to tryptamine. The enzyme is expressed ubiquitously and is essential for the formation of catecholamines, indoleamines and trace amines. DDC is considered to be the rate-limiting step for the formation of trace amines, but not for the formation of catecholamines or indoleamines. It also becomes rate-limiting for dopamine formation in Parkinson’s disease patients treated with L-DOPA.|
