Oxidation of ceruloplasmin substrates by serum of different animal species

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Investigation was made on the activity of serum from different animal species to oxidize ceruloplasmin substrates (p-phenylenediamine and dimethyl-p-phenylenediamine). Striking differences were found among the species considered. Rat serum oxidizes preferentially p-phenylenediamine, while the other species can oxidize both p-phenylenediamine and N,N-dimethyl-p-phenylenediamine although at different rates.
