Tyrosinase converts tyrosine to dopaquinone in the first step of the pathway for synthesizing melanin.
Dopaquinone is converted to melanin in the second step of the pathway for synthesizing melanin.
This tryrosinase structure is from a bacteria, Bacillus megaterium. The sequence is similar to the sequence of the tyrosinase protein in humans and other animals like cats and dogs.
This tryrosinase structure is identical to the other one from Bacillus. Use this for modeling.
