Principles of pharmacology 3rd ed. However, tolcapone is clinically restricted owning to its increased hepatotoxicity and other related digestive disorders.

The best-studied is ValMet.

Retrieved November 16, Genetic variation with functional impact on cortical dopamine tone has a strong influence on reward experience in the flow of daily life.

More reference expression data. Two of the nitrocatechols, entacapone Oroszi G, Goldman D December When given with an inhibitor of dopa decarboxylase carbidopa or benserazidelevodopa is optimally saved. Serine hydroxymethyltransferase inhibidoes hydroxymethyltransferase. The Journal of Biological Chemistry.

Comparable effects on similar cognitive tasks, the frontal lobes, and the neurotransmitter dopamine have also all been linked to schizophrenia. Both entacapone and tolcapone are well-tolerated. Levodopaa precursor of catecholamines, is an important substrate of COMT.

Given the preferential role of COMT in prefrontal dopamine degradation, the ValMet polymorphism is thought to exert its effects on cognition by modulating dopamine signaling in the frontal lobes.

For tolcapone and mg have most often proved to be the optimal doses. Any compound having a catechol structure, like catecholestrogens and catechol-containing flavonoids, are substrates of COMT.

Genes on human chromosome 22 EC 2. They induce a dose-dependent inhibition of COMT activity in erythrocytes and a significant decrease in the plasma levels of 3-O-methyldopa, indicating their effectiveness as COMT inhibitors.

The O in the name stands for oxygennot for ortho. The effect size of genotypic moderation was quite large: The Central Nervous System.
