The inhibitory effect of [Cu.sup.2+] seen here could be due to direct binding to ALP (like [Hg.sup.2+]); however, due to the redox cycling nature of [Cu.sup.2+], it is possible that some redox reactions involving the enzyme may be involved as well.

PQQ's powerful redox cycling abilities help it to chemically modify receptors for the most potent excitotoxic neurotransmitter, known as NMDA (N-Methyl-D-aspartic acid).
Nitric oxide synthases catalyze the activation of redox cycling and bioreductive anticancer agents.
It may be assumed that interactions with transition metal ions could be important in the regenerating liver since hepatectomy induces early redistribution of iron from the spleen and thymus into the tissue of regenerating liver [71] but also enhances oxygen delivery to the cells, necessary for the oxidative activation of phenolics via the redox cycling mechanism.
Reduced Hcy may cause redox cycling and disulfide interchange with other thiols, preferably cyst(e)ine, thus interfering with disulfide bonds.
