Tyrosinase (EC 1.14.18.1), a coppercontaining enzyme that is crucial for melanin production [29], oxidizes monophenol (tyrosine) to odiphenol L-DOPA and subsequently to o-quinone dopachrome, which then undergoes chemical and enzymatic reactions to yield melanin [30].
While findings can lead to new treatments to decrease alpha-synuclein levels, researchers say continuing treatment with L-Dopa, which replenishes doparnine in the brain, remains standard care.
