Dopamine beta-hydroxylase (DbH) is a homotetramer enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction that converts dopamine to norepinephrine. It is the only known membrane-bound enzyme capable of synthesizing a small-molecule inside synaptic vesicles. DbH is expressed in noradrenergic nerve terminals and in chromaffin cells of the adrenal medulla. Clinically, low levels of DbH expression is identified as DbH deficiency, and has been shown to correlate with conditions associated with addiction, decision making, ADHD and Alzheimer’s Disease.Product Details
