Tyrosinase Activity

Tryrosinase is the central enzyme involved in melanin formation within the melanosomes, where it catalyses the initial rate-limiting step of tyrosine hydroxylation.

Tryrosinase activity in vitro may be modulated by whitening or tanning active ingredients.

The activity of tyrosinase can be evaluated by a colorimetric method based in 96-well plates.
