N-Docosahexaenoyl dopamine (DHA-DA) is an amine conjugate of the neurotransmitter dopamine and the polyunsaturated fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; Item No. 90310). DHA-DA is actively transported into the brain following intraperitoneal injections in mice, resulting in reduced general locomotor activity of 35-40% at a dose of 5 mg/kg.{13595} It is theorized that the DHA portion of the molecule serves as a carrier for DA through the blood-brain barrier via a DHA-mediated transport system.{13595} DHA-DA exhibits immune-modulating, anti-inflammatory activity in the range of 0.1-2.5 uM, suppressing the production of nitric oxide, IL-6, CCL20, MCP-1, and PGE2 (Item No. 14010) in LPS-stimulated macrophages and microglial cells without affecting NF-?B activity.{32905}
