Human Ceruloplasmin shares 80.8% and 79.6% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with mouse and rat Ceruloplasmin, respectively.
Reconstitute with 0.2 mL of distilled water to yield a concentration of 500 µg/mL.
Ceruloplasmin encodes a protein that is a metalloprotein that binds most of the copper in plasma and is involved in the peroxidation of Fe(II)transferrin to Fe(III) transferrin. Mutations in this gene cause aceruloplasminemia, which results in iron accumulation and tissue damage, and is associated with diabetes and neurologic abnormalities.
