Enzyme Commission Primary Name: ferroxidase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: ceruloplasmin, caeruloplasmin, ferroxidase I, iron oxidase, iron(II):oxygen oxidoreductase, ferro:O2 oxidoreductase, iron II:oxygen oxidoreductase, hephaestin, HEPH
Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme in blood plasma (ceruloplasmin) belongs to the family of multicopper oxidases. In humans it accounts for 95% of plasma copper. It oxidizes Fe(II) to Fe(III), which allows the subsequent incorporation of the latter into proteins such as apotransferrin and lactoferrin. An enzyme from iron oxidizing bacterium strain TI-1 contains heme a.
