Fluorimetric reagent and major catecholamine metaboliteHomovanillic acid is used as a reagent in the determination of oxidative enzymes. It is associated with dopamine levels in the brain. Its presence supports a diagnosis of neuroblastoma and malignant pheochromocytoma.
Reagent for the determination of enzymes: Anal. Chem., 40, 190 (1968), and amino acids: Anal. Biochem., 26, 1 (1968).
