This tracer, an analog of dopa, is a large, neutral amino acid that is transported into presynaptic neurons, where it is converted by the enzyme dopa decarboxylase into fluorodopamine F18, which subsequently enters catecholamine-storage vesicles. That the enzyme deficiency resulted in excessive purine synthesis suggested that the enzyme or the product of its function normally plays engermedad controlling role in purine metabolism.
