Functioni

This is a copper-containing oxidase that functions in the formation of pigments such as melanins and other polyphenolic compounds. Catalyzes the initial and rate limiting step in the cascade of reactions leading to melanin production from tyrosine. In addition to hydroxylating tyrosine to DOPA (3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine), also catalyzes the oxidation of DOPA to DOPA-quinone, and possibly the oxidation of DHI (5,6-dihydroxyindole) to indole-5,6 quinone.By similarity

Catalytic activityi

2 L-dopa + O2 = 2 dopaquinone + 2 H2O.By similarity
L-tyrosine + O2 = dopaquinone + H2O.By similarity

Cofactori

Involvement in diseasei

Defects in TYR are the cause of oculocutaneous albinism (OCA). The only known albino gorilla, called Floquet de Neu ('Snowflake') had white hair, pink skin and blue eyes (zoologic park of Barcelona, 1964-2003). No differences were found at the amino-acid level but the activity of this enzyme was lacking in 'Snowflake'.1 Publication
