Dopamine is also known as L-dopamine, dopamin, hydroxytyramine .
Build a 3D molecular model of the Dopamine hormone/neurotransmitter out of Genuine Molymod Components from Indigo Instruments.
Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter involved in nerve cell communication, motor control & release of other hormones. Its action is also tied to Parkinson's disease, possibly schizophrenia, vasodilation & sodium excretion. It has also now believed to be involved in stimulating creativity.
A precursor molecule for dopamine is L-dopa, used as a drug treatment for Parkinsons since it can cross the blood brain barrier whereas dopamine cannot.
