Tyr

Symbol for tyrosine and tyrosyl.

TYR

A gene on chromosome 11q14-q21 that encodes tyrosinase, a copper-containing oxidase involved in pigment (e.g., melanin) formation and metabolism of other polyphenolic compounds. Tyrosinase catalyses the rate-limiting conversions of tyrosine to DOPA, DOPA to DOPA-quinone.

Molecular pathology
TYR mutations cause oculocutaneous albinism types 1A and 1B.

Tyr

Abbreviation for tyrosine and its radicals.

Tyr

abbrev. TYROSINE.

TYR

Abbreviation for tyramine.
