Name Cysteinyldopa
CAS Type 1 Name L-Tyrosine, 3-((2-amino-2-carboxyethyl)thio)-5-hydroxy-, (R)-
Equivalent Terms 5 S Cysteinyldopa | 5-S-Cysteinyldopa
CAS Registry Number 19641-92-0
Definition Found in large amounts in the plasma and urine of patients with malignant melanoma. It is therefore used in the diagnosis of melanoma and for the detection of postoperative metastases.
