Studies on Copper Metabolism

  title={Studies on Copper Metabolism},
  author={G. E.J. and Cartwright},
The results of studies on certain enzymes, hemin chromoproteins, and iron and copper in the tissues of normal, copper-deficient, and iron-deficient swine are reported in this paper. It has been suggested that the enzymes cytochrome oxidase (l-3), uricase (4), tyrosinase (5), plasma polyphenol oxidase (coeruloplasmin) (6), glutathione oxidase (7), and butyryl coenzyme A dehydrogenase (8) either contain copper or are associated with copper in their activity. Accordingly a study of the activity of… CONTINUE READING
