Storage The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Notes Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.

Function Catalyzes the conversion of L-dopachrome into 5,6-dihydroxyindole-2-carboxylic acid (DHICA)
Involvement in disease The slaty mutation in Tyrp2 leads to a decrease of DT activity and a consequent change in the pigmentation of the mice to a dark gray/brown eumelanin. The slaty-2j mutation has a similar phenotype, the slaty-lt (light) mutation has a more severe effect and is semidominant; its phenotype may be a result of the failure of the enzyme to be correctly targeted to its normal location on the inner face of the melanosomal membrane.
Subcellular Location Melanosome membrane, Single-pass type I membrane protein, Melanosome
Protein Families Tyrosinase family
Tissue Specificity Melanocytes and retinal pigmented epithelium.
