Kinetic studies were performed to dissect the mechanism underlying the remarkable Mn2+ stimulation of the Dopa/tyrosine-sulfating activity of the human monoamine (M)-form phenol sulfotransferase (PST). The activities and the stimulation by Mn2+ are highly stereospecific for the D-form enantiomers of tyrosine and Dopa.
