Technical Data
Myeloperoxidase (MPO)
Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a heme protein synthesized during myeloid differentiation that constitutes the major component of neutrophil azurophilic granules. Produced as a single chain precursor, myeloperoxidase is subsequently cleaved into a light and heavy chain. The mature myeloperoxidase is a tetramer composed of 2 light chains (12kD) and 2 heavy chains (60kD). This enzyme produces hypohalous acids central to the microbicidal activity of neutrophils. It is released in a degranulation process in response to bursts of oxygen consumption, which also forms H2O2. MPO and H2O2 form a complex that oxidases a large variety of substances some of which have microbicidal effects. The gene for MPO is translocated in patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia and is mutated in hereditary MPO deficiency.
