Tyrosinase is a member of the type 3 copper enzyme family that is involved in the production of melanin in a wide range of organisms. The crystal structures of a tyrosinase from Bacillus megaterium were determined at a resolution of 2.0-2.3 Å. The enzyme crystallized as a dimer in the asymmetric unit and was shown to be active in crystal. The overall(More)
Tyrosinases are type 3 copper enzymes that are involved in the production of melanin and have two copper ions in the active site. Here, the crystallization and primary analysis of a tyrosinase from Bacillus megaterium is reported. The purified protein was crystallized in the absence or presence of zinc ions and the crystals diffracted to a resolution of 2.0(More)
Tyrosinase is a member of the type 3 copper enzyme family involved in the production of melanin in a wide range of organisms. The ability of tyrosinases to convert monophenols into diphenols has stimulated studies regarding the production of substituted catechols, important intermediates for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, polymerization(More)
