5. CONCLUSIONS AND OUTLOOK A significant sequence-specific difference between fungal and plant PPOs exists, due to the nonexistence of a transit peptide in fungi and varying motifs in conserved regions. Based on the sequence information of the core domain, it cannot be predicted if a CO, tyrosinase, or aureusidin synthase is present. Therefore, it is not possible to classify a plant PPO into a CO, tyrosinase, or aureusidin synthase only based on its amino acid sequence. Despite the X-ray structures of type-3 copper proteins and enzymes that have been published in the last 25 years, still many questions are yet not answered.
