What is Levodopa
L-DOPA is produced from the amino acid L-Tyrosine by the enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase. It is the precursor for monoamine or catecholamine neurotransmitters dopamine, noradrenaline, and epinephrine. Dopamine is formed by the decarboxylation of L-DOPA. L-DOPA can be directly metabolized by catechol-
 -O-methyl transferase to 3-O-methyldopa, and then further to vanillactic acid.
L-DOPA (alt., L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine) is a chemical used as part of the normal biology of humans, some animals and plants. Some animals and humans make it via biosynthesis. Herbal extracts containing L-DOPA are available. L-DOPA can be manufactured and in its pure form is sold as a psychoactive drug with the INN Levodopa, trade names include Sinemet, Parcopa, Atamet, Stalevo, Madopar, and Prolopa. As a drug, it is used in the clinical treatment of Parkinson's disease and dopamine-responsive dystonia.
How Levodopa Works
Once L-DOPA has entered the central nervous system, it is converted into dopamine by the enzyme aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase, also known as DOPA decarboxylase. Pyridoxal phosphate (vitamin B6) is a required cofactor in this reaction, and may occasionally be administered along with L-DOPA, usually in the form of pyridoxine. L-DOPA crosses the protective blood–brain barrier, whereas dopamine itself cannot. Thus, L-DOPA can increase dopamine concentrations in the treatment of Parkinson's disease and dopamine- responsive dystonia. Besides the central nervous system, L-DOPA is also converted into dopamine from within the peripheral nervous system.
