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]
