Immunological detection of myeloperoxidase in synovial fluid from patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract

We have used rocket immunoelectrophoresis and immunoblotting to detect myeloperoxidase in synovial fluid from patients with rheumatoid arthritis. This protein was enzymatically inactive but its identity as myeloperoxidase was confirmed by comparing its subunit structure with that of the purified enzyme. When neutrophils were stimulated to secrete… (More)
