Abstract [en]

The large neutral amino acids tyrosine and tryptophan are precursors of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin and their availability in the brain may influence neurotransmission. Disturbed neurotransmitter systems, such as the dopaminergic, noradrenergic and serotoninergic systems are implicated in the pathogenesis of neuropsychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The primary aim of this study is to outline the findings/evidence from different investigations in vitro, concerning aberrant amino acid (tyrosine, tryptophan and alanine) transport in fibroblasts obtained from patients with schizophrenia and their relatives, bipolar-I disorder, autism and ADHD disorders.

The outlines of the findings presented in this study provide evidence that amino acids, tyrosine and tryptophan are strongly involved in schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism and ADHD.
