Metabolite Identification
Common NameDopamine
DescriptionDopamine, also known as 3-hydroxytyramine or deoxyepinephrine, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as catecholamines and derivatives. Catecholamines and derivatives are compounds containing 4-(2-Aminoethyl)pyrocatechol [4-(2-aminoethyl)benzene-1,2-diol] or a derivative thereof formed by substitution. Dopamine is a drug which is used for the correction of hemodynamic imbalances present in the shock syndrome due to myocardial infarction, trauma, endotoxic septicemia, open-heart surgery, renal failure, and chronic cardiac decompensation as in congestive failure. Dopamine exists as a solid, possibly soluble (in water), and a very strong basic compound (based on its pKa) molecule. Dopamine exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. Dopamine participates in a number of enzymatic reactions, within cattle. In particular, Dopamine can be converted into dopamine; which is catalyzed by the enzyme D(1a) dopamine receptor. In addition, Dopamine can be converted into dopamine through its interaction with the enzyme D(1a) dopamine receptor. In cattle, dopamine is involved in the metabolic pathway called the dopamine activation OF neurological reward system pathway. Dopamine is a potentially toxic compound.
