  • Comparative analysis of Anopheles gambiae L-tyrosine decarboxylase and L-DOPA decarboxylase A major pathway of tyramine and dopamine synthesis in insects is through the decarboxylation of tyrosine and DOPA, respectively. [...] Key Method In this study, after tyrosine decarboxylase and DOPA decarboxylase enzymes of Anopheles gambiae were expressed, their substrate specificities and biochemical properties were critically analyzed. My results provide clear biochemical evidence establishing that the mosquito…Expand Abstract
