The respiratory protein hemocyanin is present in molluscans and in some species of arthropods, and its dioxygen binding site strongly resembles that of the monophenol-hydroxylating and catechol-quinonising enzyme tyrosinase. Moreover, some hemocyanins show a certain extent of tyrosinase activity, so a common ancestry between the two proteins has been suggested. However, in the case purified hemocyanin of Scyllarides latus any attempts to evoke tyrosinase activity failed. A distinct tyrosinase… Expand
