DBH (human)

DBH Conversion of dopamine to noradrenaline. Homotetramer composed of two non-covalently bound disulfide-linked dimers. Activity is enhanced by nerve growth factor (in superior cervical ganglia and adrenal medulla). Trans-synaptic stimulation with reserpine, acetylcholine and glucocorticoids. Belongs to the copper type II ascorbate-dependent monooxygenase family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Amino Acid Metabolism - tyrosine; EC; Apoptosis; Motility/polarity/chemotaxis; Cell cycle regulation; Oxidoreductase; Membrane protein, integral
Cellular Component: membrane; cytoplasm; integral to membrane; extracellular region
Molecular Function: copper ion binding; L-ascorbic acid binding; dopamine beta-monooxygenase activity; catalytic activity
Biological Process: fear response; dopamine catabolic process; maternal behavior; response to amphetamine; cytokine production; locomotory behavior; response to pain; behavioral response to ethanol; leukocyte mediated immunity; glucose homeostasis; memory; regulation of cell proliferation; norepinephrine biosynthetic process; synaptic transmission; catecholamine biosynthetic process; homoiothermy; positive regulation of vasoconstriction; visual learning; blood vessel remodeling; leukocyte migration
