Applications

3,4-dihydroxy-L-phenylalanine (DOPA) is used as a cell adhesion molecule in serum-free cultures of anchorage-dependent mammalian cells. It is also used as an anticholinergic drug and used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. It acts as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of other catecholamines (norepinephrine, epinephrine) and melanin. It acts as a precursor of dopamine product of tyrosine hydroxylase.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
