ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Tyrosine 3-monooxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
L-tyrosine hydroxylase.
Tyrosine 3-hydroxylase.
Tyrosine hydroxylase.
Reaction catalysed
L-tyrosine + tetrahydrobiopterin + O(2) <=> L-dopa + 4a-hydroxytetrahydrobiopterin
Fe cation.
  • Activated by phosphorylation, catalyzed by EC
  • The 4a-hydroxytetrahydrobiopterin formed can dehydrate to 6,7- dihydrobiopterin, both spontaneously and by the action of EC
  • The 6,7-dihydrobiopterin can be enzymically reduced back to tetrahydrobiopterin, by EC, or slowly rearranges into the more stable compound 7,8-dihydrobiopterin.
