Part Descriptions

LP14463-1   Metanephrine
Metanephrine is a metabolite generated when epiniphrine is cleaved by catechol O-methyltransferase. It is also known as 4-hydroxy-3-methoxy-alpha-((methylamino)methyl) benzenemethanol with formula C10-H15-N-O3. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP14463-1   Metanephrine
Extra-neuronal catechol-o-methyl transferase (COMT) metabolite of the catecholamine epinephrine. Measurement of plasma metanephrines is more sensitive (but may be less specific) than measurement of catecholamines for the detection of neuroblastoma and pheochromocytoma.
