The production of black pigments in bacteria was discovered more than a century ago and related to tyrosine metabolism. However, their diverse biological roles and the control of melanin synthesis in different bacteria have only recently been investigated. The broad distribution of these pigments suggests that they have an important role in a variety of organisms. Melanins protect microorganisms from many environmental stress conditions, ranging from ultraviolet radiation and toxic heavy metals ...

Abstract Vibrio splendidus is a well-documented pathogenic bacterium that can trigger different diseases, including skin ulcer syndrome in Apostichopus japonicus. In our previous study, a gene named Vshppd encoding a 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase homologue was cloned from pathogenic V. splendidus, and validated to be responsible for the haemolysis activities of V. splendidus. In this study, Vshppd was determined to participate in the catabolism of tyrosine and promote pyomelanin production...
