Ferrous oxidase ceruloplasmin assay

K B Male, J H Luong
1,1'-dimethylferricinium (DMFe+), a stable and pH-insensitive blue dye, was prepared via enzymatic oxidation of a 1,1'dimethyl-ferrocene (DMFe):2-hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (HPCD) water-soluble inclusion complex, using bilirubin oxidase immobilized onto porous aminopropyl glass beads via glutaraldehyde activation. In the presence of glucose, DMFe+ was reduced to DMFe by reacting with the reduced glucose oxidase (FADH2), and the absorbance decrease was followed at 650 nm. In acetate pH 5.2 buffer, the response to glucose in blood serum was nonlinear, especially in the low concentration range, because of a competition for the reduced glucose oxidase between the DMFe+ dye and oxygen...

S. cerevisiae accumulate iron by a process requiring a ferrireductase and a ferrous transporter. We have isolated a mutant, fet3, defective for high affinity Fe(II) uptake. The wild-type FET3 gene was isolated by complementation of the mutant defect. Sequence analysis of the gene revealed the presence of an open reading frame coding for a protein with strong similarity to the family of blue multicopper oxidoreductases. Consistent with the role of copper in iron transport, growth of wild-type cells in copper-deficient media resulted in decreased ferrous iron transport...

The oxidase activity of caeruloplasmin towards Fe II (ferroxidase) appears to be of physiological significance both in iron metabolism and as a serum anti-oxidant. We have developed an automated assay for ferroxidase using a centrifugal analyser. The method is quick and precise, and is not subject to interference by haemolysis, jaundice or lipaemia. Ferroxidase activities correlate significantly with caeruloplasmin and copper concentrations. Normal reference ranges have been measured.

Multifunctional roles of the plasma protein, caeruloplasmin, have been briefly reviewed under three main headings. These are protein functions, enzymic activity, and antioxidant protection. As a plasma protein it is said to play a role in the transport of copper. Since some 95% of serum copper is associated with caeruloplasmin, measurement of the protein provides a useful guide to copper levels. Enzymic functions are related to its oxidase activity. Substrates commonly used for laboratory assay include non-biologically occurring aromatic amines and polyphenols...
