The O2--producing enzyme of human neutrophils. Further properties.

Abstract

The enzyme responsible for the respiratory burst in human neutrophils is a membrane-bound oxidase that catalyzes the reduction of oxygen to O2- at the expense of a reduced pyridine nucleotide. We describe further properties of the solubilized oxidase. The rates of O2- production and NADPH consumption are consistent with the stoichiometry: 2 O2 + NADPH leads… (More)
