Catalase-like activity of human methemoglobin: a kinetic and mechanistic study.

Abstract

Hydrogen peroxide triggers a redox cycle between methemoglobin and ferrylhemoglobin, leading to protein inactivation and oxygen evolution. In the present paper, the catalase-like oxygen production by human methemoglobin in the presence of H(2)O(2) was kinetically characterized with a Clark-type electrode. Progress curves showed a pseudo-steady state in the… (More)
