On the Metal Cofactor in the Tyrosinase Family

Francisco Solano
2018 International Journal of Molecular Sciences  
The production of pigment in mammalian melanocytes requires the contribution of at least three melanogenic enzymes, tyrosinase and two other accessory enzymes called the tyrosinase-related proteins (Trp1  ...  The last two proteins are paralogues to tyrosinase, and they appeared late in evolution by triplication of the tyrosinase gene. Tyrosinase is a copper-enzyme, and Trp2 is a zinc-enzyme.  ...  Zinc is the second most abundant transition metal in organisms after iron, and it is the only metal that appears in all enzyme classes as a catalytic or structural cofactor, so that the biological impact  ...
