Quick Reference

A lysosomal haemoprotein (MPO, EC, a heterodimer of 60-kDa heavy and 12-kDa light chains, found in azurophil granules of neutrophil leucocytes and in macrophages. In the presence of halide ions, MPO hydrolyses hydrogen peroxide generated in the metabolic burst and is important for bactericidal activity, but individuals deficient in MPO are asymptomatic and chickens manage without the enzyme. A polymorphism in the MPO gene is reportedly a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease.
