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. Although tyrosine decarboxylase (TDC) has been mentioned in some reports, it has never been critically analyzed. The high sequence identity shared by tyrosine decarboxylase and DOPA decarboxylase in insects, and the similar structures of the substrates, tyrosine and DOPA, raise… CONTINUE READING
