Conserved Site

Tyrosine hydroxylase, conserved site (IPR021164)

Short name: Tyrosine_hydroxylase_CS


This domain family is found in eukaryotes, and is approximately 30 amino acids in length. There is a single completely conserved residue G that may be functionally important. Tyrosine hydroxylase converts L-tyrosine to L-DOPA in the catecholamine synthesis pathway.
