Towards defining receptors for l-tyrosine and l-DOPA

Academic Article


  • We postulate that in mammalian systems neurotransmitter and hormone-like functions of l-tyrosine (LT) and l-DOPA (LD) are mediated via specific membrane-bound and/or nuclear receptors. The structure and function of these receptors may represent an evolutionary continuum of regulatory proteins binding LT or LD in unicellular and lower multicellular organisms. © 1994.
