insight into the identi cation of cat-echolamines as they share key chemical functionality with the side chains of DOPA-Lys: catechol from DOPA and amine from

lysine. Catecholamines such as dopamine and norepinephrine have been studied as ‘minimalist mimics’ of Mefp-5 (Figure 1c ), and it was found that they have the ability [7to modify virtually any material surfaces. ] For instance, oxidative polymerization of
