3-Methoxytyramine (3-MT), also known as 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenethylamine, is a metabolite of the neurotransmitter dopamine formed by the introduction of a methyl group to dopamine by the enzyme catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT). 3-MT can be further metabolized by the enzyme monoamine oxidase (MAO) to form homovanillic acid (HVA), which is then typically excreted in the urine.
Originally thought to be inactive, 3-MT has recently been shown to act as an agonist of the TAAR1. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details. Source: Wikipedia, 3-Methoxytyramine
