|Immunogen||Myeloperoxidase isolated from human polymorphonuclear leucocytes.|
|Description||FUNCTION: Part of the host defense system of polymorphonuclear leukocytes. It isresponsible for microbicidal activity against a wide range of organisms. In the stimulatedPMN, MPO catalyzes the production of hypohalous acids, primarily hypochlorous acid inphysiologic situations, and other toxic intermediates that greatly enhance PMNmicrobicidal activity. MPO is an important marker for myeloid cells, from thepromyelocyte stage and to the mature forms.CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: Donor + H2O2 = oxidized donor + 2 H2O.CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: Cl- + H2O2 = HOCl + 2 H2O.COFACTOR: Binds 1 calcium ion per heterodimer.COFACTOR: Binds 1 heme B (iron-protoporphyrin IX) group covalently per heterodimer.SUBUNIT: Tetramer of two light chains and two heavy chains.SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Lysosome.ALTERNATIVE PRODUCTS: 3 named isoforms produced by alternative splicing.DISEASE: Defects in MPO are the cause of myeloperoxidase deficiency (MPD). MPD isan autosomal recessive defect that results in disseminated candidiasis.SIMILARITY: Belongs to the peroxidase family. XPO subfamily. Related Diseases: MPO|
