tyrosine 3-monooxygenase activity

Known as: L-tyrosine,tetrahydrobiopterin:oxygen oxidoreductase (3-hydroxylating), tyrosine hydroxylase activity, tyrosine 3-hydroxylase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: L-tyrosine + tetrahydrobiopterin + O2 = 3,4-dihydroxy-L-phenylalanine + 4-alpha-hydroxytetrahydrobiopterin + H2O. [EC:1.14… Expand
