The MPO gene encodes myeloperoxidase, a lysosomal hemoprotein located in the azurophilic granules of polymorphonuclear (PMN) leukocytes and monocytes. In response to stimulation, MPO is activated into a transient intermediate with potent antimicrobial oxidizing abilities(PMID:17650507). The mRNA is translated into a single protein of 90 kDa, which displays enzymatic activity and undergoes proteolytic maturation into a heavy chain of 59 kDa and a light chain of 13.5 kDa; these subunits then dimerize into the mature tetramer and the mature MPO is a heterotetramer composed of two identical heavy chains and two identical light chains(PMID:12773517). The 24-kDa material had a map identical to that of 13.5 kDa subunit and represents a dimer of the 13.5 kDa subunit (PMID:3008892). Defects in MPO are the cause of myeloperoxidase deficiency (MPOD). It has 3 isoforms produced by alternative splicing. This antibody is specific to MPO
