D-DOPA (D-3,4-dihydr oxyphenylalanine; Dextrodopa) is similar to L-DOPA (Levodopa), but with opposite chirality. Levo- and dextro- rotation reference a molecule's ability to rotate planes of polarized light in either direction. Whereas L-DOPA is moderately effective in the treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD), D-DOPA is biologically inactive.
