 Searchable Terms for a-Methyl-L-tryptophan purchase    Contents for alpha Methyl L-tryptophan ((S)-a-Methyltryptophan):

(S)-alpha Methyl tryptophan ( a-Methyl-L-tryptophan or methyl dl tryptophan ) is a competitive inhibitor of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase.
The enzyme indoleamine-pyrrole 2,3-dioxygenase is encoded by the IDO1 gene. It catalyzes the degradation of the essential amino acid L-tryptophan to N-formylkynurenine. Additionally,iso indoleamine-pyrrole 2,3-dioxygenase rate-limiting enzyme of tryptophan catabolism through kynurenine/ tryptophan pathway and causes depletion of tryptophan which can cause halted growth of microbes as well as T cells. Literature data has indicated linked to some viral mechanisms e.g. influenza virus and potentially cancer. Tryptophan oxidation via the kynurenine pathway is an important mechanism of tumoral immunoresistance. Increased tryptophan metabolism via the serotonin pathway has also been linked to malignant progression in breast cancer.
Inhibition of the expression indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase in dendritic cells by stereoisomers of 1-methyl-tryptophan correlates with anti tumor responses
When used as a research tool in rodents, literature has shown that a-methyltryptophan given to experimental animals gives rise to brain alpha-methylserotonin, which substitutes for serotonin in certain behavioral and functional tests.
This protein product has a wide variation of research applications.
