Hemoproteins

 

complex proteins containing the pigmented prosthetic group—hemes. Hemoproteins are classified as chromoproteins. In addition to the respiratory pigments—hemoglobin and myoglobin—hemoproteins include widely distributed respiratory enzymes—cytochromes— and oxidative enzymes of tissues—peroxidase, which catalyzes the oxidation of organic substances by hydrogen peroxide, catalase, and leghemoglobin (legoglobin), a pigment found in the root nodules of leguminous plants.

It should be mentioned that, unlike hemoglobin and other hemoproteins, hemocyanin and phenoloxidase have copper as prosthetic for their enzyme activity.
(43) The oxidized preparation had peaks at 394, 417, 535, 569, and 645 nm, suggesting that both low and high spin species of the hemoprotein (51) existed in the preparation.
Eighteen studies (35%) employed a colorimetric method, which usually involved a preseparation step by centrifugation or filtration to remove hemoglobin, followed by a commercial dipstick for hemoprotein (11, 14, 17, 26, 27, 29, 33-35, 38, 42, 45, 48, 52-54, 56, 57), and 19 (37%) used immunometric methods (11, 13, 18,19, 23, 28, 31, 32, 38, 43, 44, 46, 47, 51, 58-62).
