meta-Tyramine, also known as m-tyramine or 3-tyramine as well as 3-hydroxyphenylethylamine, is an endogenous monoamine compound and trace amine of the phenethylamine class.[1][2][3] It is a positional isomer of para-tyramine, and similarly to it, has effects on the adrenergic and dopaminergic systems.[4][5]
