    Aceruloplasminaemia is a rare recessive disorder caused by mutations in the gene encoding the multicopper ferroxidase ceruloplasmin, thought to be involved in cellular iron export. Primary intracellular iron accumulation characterises this disorder. We investigated a case of aceruloplasminaemia...

    OBJECTIVES: There is accumulating evidence that ceruloplasmin, a copper protein with ferroxidase activity, plays an important role in iron metabolism. The genetic disorder, aceruloplasminemia, can lead to tissue storage of iron as in hemochromatosis. Because most patients with Wilson's disease,...

    Also known as ferroxidase, ceruloplasmin belongs to the family of inflammation-sensitive proteins, and its main function is to transport copper in the blood. Although, in addition to this transport function, at present, there are numerous studies that have attempted to use the determination of...

    Background Ceruloplasmin is a ferroxidase expressed in the central nervous system both as soluble form in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and as membrane-bound GPI-anchored isoform on astrocytes, where it plays a role in iron homeostasis and antioxidant defense. It has been proposed that...

    This study dealt on 40 males workers at Doura refinery oil in Baghdad city of Iraq in order to check the effect of using tetra ethyl lead on human health. The study involved as well (30) age matched healthy individuals to be used as control group. The measured parameters were:- blood lead level,...

    Ceruloplasmin (glycosylphosphatidylinositol-linked ferroxidase associated with normal astrocytes) can also be secreted by glioma cells, where its function is unknown. Ceruloplasmin is not only present in glioma cells and in human glioma specimens but also is enriched in highly malignant glioma...

    We describe a novael missense mutation of ceruloplasmin in a patient with aceruloplasminaemia causing the replacement of a neutral amino acid (phenylalanine) with a polar one (serine) at position 198, probably leading to abnormal folding and secretion of the protein. The patient showed mild...

    Background: Ceruloplasmin, a ferroxidase present in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), plays a role in iron homeostasis protecting tissues from oxidative damage. Its reduced enzymatic activity was reported in Parkinson's disease (PD) contributing to the pathological iron accumulation. We previously...

    The β-amyloid precursor protein (APP), which is a key player in Alzheimer's disease, was recently reported to possess an Fe(II) binding site within its E2 domain which exhibits ferroxidase activity [Duce et al. 2010, Cell 142: 857]. The putative ligands of this site were compared to those...

  • The Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP) Does Not Have a Ferroxidase Site in Its E2 Domain. Honarmand Ebrahimi, Kourosh; Dienemann, Christian; Hoefgen, Sandra; Than, Manuel E.; Hagedoorn, Peter-Leon; Hagen, Wilfred R. // PLoS ONE;Aug2013, Vol. 8 Issue 8, p1 

    The ubiquitous 24-meric iron-storage protein ferritin and multicopper oxidases such as ceruloplasmin or hephaestin catalyze oxidation of Fe(II) to Fe(III), using molecular oxygen as oxidant. The ferroxidase activity of these proteins is essential for cellular iron homeostasis. It has been...
