Gene: DDC (dopa decarboxylase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DDC
Name: dopa decarboxylase
Description: Exhibits L-dopa decarboxylase activity and enzyme binding activity. Predicted to be involved in catecholamine biosynthetic process and indolalkylamine biosynthetic process. Localizes to the extracellular exosome. Implicated in Parkinson's disease; aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase deficiency; bipolar disorder; and inherited metabolic disorder. Biomarker of hyperinsulinism.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AADC; aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase; aromatic-L-amino-acid decarboxylase; dopa decarboxylase (aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase)
