The encoded protein catalyzes the decarboxylation of L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine to dopamine, L-5-hydroxytryptophan to serotonin and L-tryptophan to tryptamine. Defects in this gene are the cause of aromatic L-amino-acid decarboxylase deficiency . AADCD deficiency is an inborn error in neurotransmitter metabolism that leads to combined serotonin and catecholamine deficiency. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been identified for this gene.
