An endogenous inhibitor of l-Dopa decarboxylase was identified and purified from human serum. In Triton X-114 partitioning experiments, the inhibitor was recovered in the detergent enriched phase, suggesting a hydrophobic nature. Purification was achieved by means of proteinase K digestion, ammonium sulphate precipitation, phenyl sepharose hydrophobic(More)
An endogenous inhibitor of l-Dopa decarboxylase activity was identified and purified from human placenta. The endogenous inhibitor of l-Dopa decarboxylase (Ddc) was localized in the membrane fraction of placental tissue. Treatment of membranes with phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C or proteinase K did not affect membrane-associated Ddc(More)
