Question

1)Each of the compounds listed below is known to inhibit tyrosinase activity: sodium azide, sodium cyanide, L-phenylalanine, 8-hydroxyquinoline, tryptophan, diethyldithiocarbamate, cysteine, thiourea, 4-chlororesorcinol, phenylacetate Write out the structure of each molecule and explain why it would be a competitive or non-competitive inhibitor of tyrosinase activity as measured by the dopachrome assay. please help and explain i am very confused. thank you so much!

Answer #1

Please find below the formula and the chemical structures of the given compounds. Hope this info will help you. Structures are given as pictures.

Sodium azide is the inorganic compound with the formula NaN3.

[N-]=[N+]=[N-].[Na+]

It is competitive inhibitor of tyrosinase

Sodium cyanide is an inorganic compound with the formula NaCN.
