Application

Tryptamine was used in:
  • multi-layered analysis, used to differentiate and identify biogenic amines
  • in the synthesis of indole ring-terminated thiol, ω-mercaptooctyltryptamide
  • in surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopic investigation of indole ring-terminated self-assembled monolayer on gold electrode

Biochem/physiol Actions

Vasoactive; may have a neuromodulator function; biogenic amine formed from the decarboxylation of tryptophan by L-aromatic amino acid decarboxylase.
