Accession:GO:0006585 term browser browse the term
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of dopamine (3,4-dihydroxyphenylethylamine) from L-tyrosine, via the metabolic precursor 3,4-dihydroxy-L-phenylalanine (L-dopa). Dopamine is a catecholamine neurotransmitter and a metabolic precursor of norepinephrine and epinephrine.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: dopamine anabolism from tyrosine;   dopamine formation from tyrosine;   dopamine synthesis from tyrosine
