anti-TYR antibody
Tyrosinase is a copper containing oxidase that catalyzes the first step in the conversion of tyrosine to melanin, and other polyphenolic compounds. It also catalyzes the rate-limiting conversion of tyrosine to DOPA. Mutations in tyrosinase are the cause of oculocutaneous albinism 1A.

NCBI Summary for TYR
The enzyme encoded by this gene catalyzes the first 2 steps, and at least 1 subsequent step, in the conversion of tyrosine to melanin. The enzyme has both tyrosine hydroxylase and dopa oxidase catalytic activities, and requires copper for function. Mutations in this gene result in oculocutaneous albinism, and nonpathologic polymorphisms result in skin pigmentation variation. The human genome contains a pseudogene similar to the 3' half of this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]
UniProt Comments for TYR
TYR: This is a copper-containing oxidase that functions in the formation of pigments such as melanins and other polyphenolic compounds. Catalyzes the rate-limiting conversions of tyrosine to DOPA, DOPA to DOPA-quinone and possibly 5,6-dihydroxyindole to indole-5,6 quinone. Increased expression after UVB irradiation. Belongs to the tyrosinase family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
