Official Full Name
dopa decarboxylase (aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase)
Background
The encoded protein catalyzes the decarboxylation of L-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-acid decarboxylase deficiency (AADCD). AADCD deficiency is an inborn error in neurotransmitter metabolism that;leads to combined serotonin and catecholamine deficiency. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding;different isoforms have been identified for this gene.
