Figure 1: Nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequences of Pinctada fucata tyrosinase PfTy. A number of nucleotide and amino acid positions are indicated in the right margin. The putative amino acid sequence of the signal peptide is boxed. The polyadenylation signal TAATTT is underlined with a bold line. The putative histidine copper ligands are circled. The asterisk (*) in the amino acid sequence indicates the stop codon. GenBank accession number: AB353113.
