The development of the L-DOPA-content of roots, stems and leaves ofMucuna pruriens during growth of the plants is described. Besides L-DOPA, the leaves, but not the stems and the roots, also contain the related catechol dopamine. The time course of dopamine accumulation is compared to that of L-DOPA.In cell suspension cultures ofM. pruriens dopamine can be detected as well. Its level is strongly increased by addition of the growth regulator 2,4-d to the medium, a condition that suppresses cell… 
L-DOPA and Dopamine in Plant Metabolism
TLDR
The state of current knowledge on L-DOPA and dopamine biosynthesis, oxidation, functions, and prooxidant and antioxidant activities is revised in this chapter.
Elicitors and precursor induced effect on L-Dopa production in suspension cultures of Mucuna pruriens L.
TLDR
Compared to elicitor treatments precursor feeding resulted in higher concentrations of L-Dopa production, which was quantified by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).
Differential effects of elicitor and precursor feeding on the enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase and their influence on the production of L- Dopa in the cell suspension cultures of Mucuna prurita H.
TLDR
Compared to elicitor treatments, precursor feeding had more impact on L-Dopa production and on the activity of tyrosine hydroxylase.
The effects of dopamine on root growth and enzyme activity in soybean seedlings
TLDR
The data demonstrate the susceptibility of soybean to dopamine and reinforce the role of this catecholamine as a strong allelochemical and suggest that dopamine-induced inhibition in soybean roots is not related to the production of lignin, but may be related to damage caused by reactive oxygen species.
Enhanced production of L-DOPA in cell cultures of Mucuna pruriens L. and Mucuna prurita H.
TLDR
A comparative study on the production of 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA) was carried out in cell cultures of two Mucuna species by elicitor treatment and precursor feeding, with results found to be higher for suspension cultures of M. pruriensCompared to elicitor treatments, precursor feeding resulted in higher concentrations of L-Dopa production and tyrosinase activity.
Catecholamines are active plant-based drug compounds in Pisum sativum, Phaseolus vulgaris and Vicia faba Species
TLDR
The present study may provide a new avenue for preparation and estimation of L-DOPA and dopamine from plant sources and may be used for further analysis and therapeutic studies.
Cell Suspension Cultures of Portulaca grandiflora. as Potent Catalysts for Biotransformation of L-Tyrosine into L-DOPA, an Anti-Parkinson's Drug
TLDR
The optimized production of L-DOPA, 48.8 mg L−1 h−1, is one of the highest values recorded in the literature.
The mechanisms of phytotoxic action and selectivity of non-protein aromatic amino acids L-DOPA and m-tyrosine
TLDR
The recent results suggested that m-tyrosine is not incorporated into the proteins of rice root, which is sensitive to m-Tyrosine, and the mechanism of the phytotoxicity of m-TYOSine is still under investigation.
The effects of dopamine on antioxidant enzymes activities and reactive oxygen species levels in soybean roots
TLDR
The results suggest a close relationship between a possible antioxidant activity of dopamine and melanin and activation of SOD, reducing the levels of ROS and damage on membranes of soybean roots.
Beyond a Neurotransmitter: Physiological Role of Dopamine in Plants
TLDR
Dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenaline were shown to participate in intercellular regulation of ion permeability and photophosphorylation of chloroplasts as well as precursor for various alkaloids, antioxidative, sugar metabolism and coordinates with phytohormones to affect plant growth.

TLDR
A recent report indicated that 5-HTP produced improvement in a patient suffering from the Parkinson-like symptoms of chronic manganese poisoning after treatment with L-3,4-dihydroxy-phenylalanine (L-dopa) had aggravated his condition.
