IUBMB Comments
A type 3 copper protein that catalyses exclusively the oxidation of catechol (i.e., o-diphenol) to the corresponding o-quinone. The enzyme also acts on a variety of substituted catechols. It is different from tyrosinase, EC 1.14.18.1, which can catalyse both the monooxygenation of monophenols and the oxidation of catechols.
