This protein catalyzes the decarboxylation ofL-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) to dopamine,L-5-hydroxytryptophan to serotonin and L-tryptophan to tryptamine.Defects in this gene are the cause of aromatic L-amino-aciddecarboxylase deficiency (AADCD). AADCD deficiency is an inbornerror in neurotransmitter metabolism that leads to combinedserotonin and catecholamine deficiency.
