In vitro-uptake of L-Dopa and catecholamines into the epidermal Langerhans cell

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The Langerhans cells are capable of taking up L-dopa and the catecholamines dopamine and noradrenaline when exposed to these substances in vitro. Within the cell L-dopa is found in the cytoplasm as well as in the nucleus, whereas the catecholamines are confined to cytoplasmic granules. The L-dopa uptake is most probably carrier-mediated and the hypothesis is brought forward that L-dopa enters the cell by exchange diffusion. At present little is known about the nature of the amine uptake mechanism.
