Chemical Dihydroxyphenylalanine

Name Dihydroxyphenylalanine
CAS Type 1 Name DL-Tyrosine, 3-hydroxy-
Equivalent Terms 3,4 Dihydroxyphenylalanine | 3,4-Dihydroxyphenylalanine | 3 Hydroxy DL tyrosine | 3-Hydroxy-DL-tyrosine | beta Hydroxytyrosine | beta-Hydroxytyrosine | Dihydroxyphenylalanine Hydrochloride, (2:1) | Dopa
CAS Registry Number 63-84-3
Definition A beta-hydroxylated derivative of phenylalanine. The D-form of dihydroxyphenylalanine has less physiologic activity than the L-form and is commonly used experimentally to determine whether the pharmacological effects of LEVODOPA are stereospecific.
