The biochemical, spectroscopic, enzymatic, and redox properties of spleen myeloperoxidase, a peroxidase formerly called 'spleen green hemeprotein', and granulocyte myeloperoxidase were compared by electrophoresis, amino-terminal amino acid sequences, optical and EPR spectroscopy, steady-state enzyme kinetics, and oxidation-reduction potential. The spleen enzyme exhibits properties indistinguishable from those of the granulocyte enzyme. We conclude that the spleen enzyme is indeed identical to granulocyte myeloperoxidase.
