The human tyrosinase ectodomain has been expressed in Escherichia coli as a soluble form and purified by immobilized metal affinity column chromatography. The ectodomain exhibited tyrosinase activities toward the hydroxylation and oxidation reactions. Biochemical properties of the ectodomain appeared to be distinct from those of the human tyrosinase, although common features were retained.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
