Gene: DBH (dopamine beta-hydroxylase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DBH
Name: dopamine beta-hydroxylase
CRRD ID: 736659
Description: Exhibits copper ion binding activity and dopamine beta-monooxygenase activity. Involved in dopamine catabolic process and norepinephrine biosynthetic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including centriolar satellite; endoplasmic reticulum; and secretory granule. Implicated in several diseases, including alcohol use disorder; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; dopamine beta-hydroxylase deficiency; hypertension; and migraine with aura. Biomarker of Parkinson's disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
