Several species of anthozoans have been found to contain significant quantities of DOPA and DOPA-like derivatives, such as 5-cysteinyldopa and 5-hydroxydopa, in their nerve nets (Carlberg et al., 1982; Carlberg, 1983, 1990; Hudman and McFarlane, 1995).
To that effect, we applied the conceptualization and methodology of the DOPA model to the measuring of approaches toward diversity in the educational context, and examined the relationships between these and two variables of teacher adaptation--namely, teachers' diversity-related burnout and teachers' immigration-related self-efficacy.

When L-ascorbic acid concentration was further increased other than the optimal, a decrease in L- dopa production was detected due to sturdy acidic conditions which destroyed the enzyme activity.
