Role of Copper in Mitochondrial Iron Metabolism

Heme synthesis by copper-deficient cells at the normal rate. The rate of heme was investigated to elucidate the nature synthesis correlated with the cytochrome of the defect in intracellular iron metab- oxidase activity. Heme synthesis from olism. Iron uptake from transferrin by Fe(IIl) and protoporphyrin by normal copper-deficient reticulocytes was 52% of mitochondria was enhanced by succinate normal, and the rate of heme synthesis and inhibited by malonate, antimycin A, was 33% of normal. Hepatic mitochondria azide, and cyanide. It is proposed that an isolated from copper-deficient animals intact electron transport system is required were deficient in cytochrome oxidase for the reduction of Fe(lll) , thereby proactivity and failed to synthesize heme viding a pool of ferrous iron ( Fe II) for from fernc iron (Fe Ill) and protoporphyrin protoheme and heme a synthesis.
