The American Journal of Psychiatry. Research conducted at the Section of Neurobiology of PsychosisInstitute of Psychiatry, King’s College London has demonstrated an effect of COMT both in patients with bipolar disorder and in their relatives, [36] [ unreliable medical source ] but these findings have not been replicated so far.

Neurotransmitters and their receptors”.

As the regulation of catecholamines is impaired in a number of lq conditions, several pharmaceutical drugs target COMT to alter its activity and therefore the availability of catecholamines.

The Central Nervous System. Catechol- O -methyltransferase is involved in the inactivation of the catecholamine neurotransmitters dopamineepinephrineand norepinephrine. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

Zhu BT October A functional single-nucleotide polymorphism a common normal cojt of the gene for catechol-O-methyltransferase results in a valine to methionine mutation at position Val Met rs Genes on human chromosome 22 EC 2.

Thus, COMT inhibitors are clinically significant and beneficial adjunct to levodopa therapy in Parkinson’s disease patients with end-of-dose fluctuations. 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. Consequently, they increase the elimination half-life of levodopa and thus prolong the availability of levodopa to the brain without significantly affecting the Cmax or tmax of levodopa.

COMT inhibition in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.

Tyrosine hydroxylase Aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase Dopamine beta-hydroxylase Phenylethanolamine N-methyltransferase. Any compound having a catechol structure, like catecholestrogens and catechol-containing flavonoids, are substrates of COMT.

The enzyme introduces a methyl group to the catecholamine, which is donated by S-adenosyl methionine Knhibidores. However, tolcapone is clinically restricted owning to its increased hepatotoxicity and other related digestive disorders.

The gene variant has been shown to affect cognitive tasks broadly related to executive functionsuch as set shifting, response inhibition, abstract thought, and the acquisition of rules or task structure. Enzymes involved in neurotransmission. However, there seems to be a trend for tolcapone to induce more often diarrhoea and increase dde liver transaminases compared with entacapone.
