Comparison of the Catalytic Activities of Mammalian Ceruloplasmins
The oxidation of cysteine catalyzed by ceruloplasmin at pH 6.9 involves a single electron transfer. Superoxide ion has been identified as a product of this reaction. The superoxide dismutase activity of ceruloplasmins has also been observed.
