For example, it is the precursor of melanins, which form the body pigments. Albinism is the result of inability to convert tyrosine to melanin [10]. Inability to metabolize homogentisic acid, an intermediate of tyrosine catabolism, will result in the excretion of that compound in the urine, causing the urine to become dark. Known as alkaptonuria, this disease apparently has no detrimental consequences [11]. Tyrosi ne is also the major amino acid precursor of thyroxine and the catecholarnines (epinephrine and norepinephrine).

In most higher animals the first category inc1udes only the two amino acids, L-Iysine and L-threonine, whereas the second category contains leucine, isoleucine, valine, tryptophan, phenylalanine, and methionine. The two amino acids, tyrosine and cysteine, are not regarded as essential because they can be made in the body from phenylalanine and methionine, respectively. However, this is the only source for their synthesis. In early stages of development, higher animals appear to require also arginine and histidine.
