Reaction of bovine erythrocyte green hemoprotein with oxygen and hydrogen peroxide.


Bovine erythrocyte green hemoprotein was shown to undergo rapid and complete bleaching during aerobic reduction by dithionite. In order to explain this phenomenon, we have studied the reactions of the ferrihemoprotein with dithionite and H202 and the reactions of the ferrohemoprotein with HzOz and OZ. Bleaching caused by aerobic dithionite was shown not to… (More)
