Tyrosinase Inhibitor Screening Kit (Colorimetric) provides a rapid, simple, sensitive, and reliable test suitable for high-throughput screening of tyrosinase inhibitors. Tyrosinase catalyzes the oxidation of tyrosine, producing a chromophore that can be detected at OD = 510 nm. In the presence of kojic Acid, a reversible inhibitor of tyrosinase, the rate of oxidation of the substrate is decreased.

Tyrosinase or polyphenol oxidase (EC 1.14.18.1), is an oxidoreductase that participates in the biosynthesis of melanin, a ubiquitous biological pigment found in hair, eyes, skin, etc. Inhibition of tyrosinase has been a long-time target in the skin health research, cosmetics and agricultural industries because of its role in browning reactions in skin pigmentation and during fruit harvesting and handling.
