The reactivity with dioxygen of a mammalian (sheep) ceruloplasmin, anaerobically reduced with ascorbate, was found to depend on the state of the Type 2 and Type 3 copper centers, as monitored by EPR and optical spectroscopy. A complete reoxidation by air after anaerobic reduction with ascorbate was observed with samples (A) purified by the single-step procedure described for chicken ceruloplasmin (Calabrese, L., Carbonaro, M., and Musci, G. (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 263, 6480-6483), while samples… CONTINUE READING
