The synthesis of dopamine from DOPA in the ganglia of Mercenaria mercenaria (mollusca, pelecypoda)☆
Review articleOpen access
Abstract:

Abstract1.1. Ganglia of Mercenaria mercenaria are able to synthesize dopamine† from DOPA.†2.2. Tissues of Mercenaria other than ganglia contain low levels of newly synthesized dopamine following injection of DOPA-3H, but ganglia are the most concentrated sites of dopamine synthesis.3.3. Measurements of dopamine turnover in isolated pedal ganglia and the time course of ganglionic dopamine synthesized in the animal suggest that dopamine is not actively metabolized in Mercenaria ganglia.
