Albinism

 


 

 

In oculocutaneous albinism the enzyme which catalyses the conversion of DOPA (dihdroxyphenylalanine) is absent and hence  the pigment melanin cannot be synthesized, the affected individuals then appear white in skin color if they were originally black. The choroids and retina also lacks the pigment melanin.
